Last year's second round Draft pick missed 14 days of work because of a hamstring injury, according to MLive.com. The team has high hopes for Leshoure as a power running back, but he's barely been on the field since getting drafted. He tore his Achilles' tendon and missed all of last year. He's suspended the first two games to start the season after getting arrested twice this offseason.
The Lions figure to be a very pass-heavy team this year, but the threat of a running game would help enormously. Leshoure is probably the team's best chance at the position of being a difference maker.
