Detroit running back Mikel Leshoure has more marijuana arrests while a member of the Detroit Lions than games played. WXYZ is reporting that Leshoure was cited in Berrien County on March 12th, less than a month after he was cited in Benson Township and plead guilty to a reduced charge.
Leshoure was Detroit’s second round pick in 2011 out of Illinois. He was supposed to play a large role as the bigger back in a platoon with Jahvid Best, but tore his Achilles’ tendon during training camp last year. With two incidents in two months, he is now likely to be meeting with Roger Goodell. The Lions’ running back situation was a shambles last year by mid-season, and with Jahvid Best’s concussion history and Leshoure’s injury plus his legal issues, they may have to address the position in April.
