Jahvid Best, Mikel Leshoure on field at Lions OTAs

"I'm back."

That's what second year running back Mikel Leshoure shouted to his teammates on Monday as OTAs kicked off in Detroit, according to the team's website. Leshoure is understandably thrilled to be playing football again.

ATL: Don't believe the hype
This time of year every player looks great but don't believe everything you hear. Gregg Rosenthal writes. More ...

Last year's second-round pick tore his Achilles in 2011. He was subsequently arrested twice on marijuana charges in 2012, which brought his future in the team into question. Detroit's backfield is full of question marks with LeShoure and Jahvid Best in the mix.

Yep, Best was on the field as well Monday morning. This was expected, although Best isn't cleared for full contact just yet. The team's website expects LeShoure and Best to be fully ready for the start of the season.

Wide receiver Ryan Broyles, who is coming off a torn anterior cruciate ligament, was also on the field Monday running routes. It's that time of year. Last year's question marks look ready to go. Every roster looks stacked. Hope springs eternal.
