Detroit Lions Can't Catch a Break: Mikel Leshoure Suffers Torn Achilles, Out For the Season

And so it begins for the long-suffering Detroit Lions: 2nd round pick Mikel Leshoure, a running back from Illinois, tore his ACL Monday morning and is out for the season. Leshoure, a 6-foot, 230-pound running back who was expected to play thunder to Jahvid Best’s lighting, is damaging blow to what many think could be an explosive offense. Now it looks like the Lions will have to rely on Maurice Morris again, unless they want to consider picking up a free agent like Clinton Portis or Ricky Williams. Jerome Harrison is also on the market.

You may recall that last week, the Lions lost 1st round pick Nick Fairley to a broken foot. The smart move would be to put their other 2nd round pick, Titus Young from Boise State, in a no-contact jersey, right?

Hey, at least Matt Stafford hasn’t gone down. Yet.
