Darius Leonard was being a kind, thoughtful guy when he gifted his game gloves to a young fan at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The Indianapolis Colts linebacker didn’t realize he was also giving his wedding ring away.
Tyler Brooke mentioned the incident on Twitter on Monday and asked for help getting it back to him. His step-nephew was the one given the gloves.
A plot twist, indeed. Leonard replied back quickly.

The gloves are en route back to Indianapolis and Leonard. Brett Bensley, a local reporter in the city, shared the video of Leonard tossing the fan his gloves. The most incredible part — other than him not realizing it came off — was that the ring didn’t fall out on the toss.

Thankfully the case of the missing ring has a happy ending for Leonard. He and his wife, Kayla, have known each other since they were in kindergarten in South Carolina and have a daughter together.
