"I'm definitely not happy about it," Leshoure said Thursday, via the Detroit Free Press. "I would love to be out there with my team, but I understand the consequences you have to face when you do wrong. I know one thing for sure and one thing for certain: I definitely learned from my mistakes. Still putting it behind me but got to accept it and move forward. Just come back that third game and put it in the past."
Leshoure was arrested twice over a one-month span in February and March for possession of marijuana, pleading guilty to lesser charges in both cases.
It's an unnecessary hurdle for Leshoure, who already is facing the difficult task of being a running back attempting to return from a torn Achilles' tendon that cost him his rookie season.
Leshoure has been restricted to position drills most of the offseason, but ran pass routes in 7-on-7 drills and took handoffs in team run drills during minicamp.
Leshoure said that his legal issues taught him he has "to be careful" (read into that how you will), and that his actions "reflect on the Detroit Lions, University of Illinois, my family, my teammates, everyone."
