Mikel Leshoure Returns To Practice For Lions

New, comments

On Wednesday, for the first time since the very beginning of training camp, Detroit Lions running back Mikel Leshoure was able to practice. He had been sidelined because of a hamstring injury that just kept lingering. Recently, Leshoure had been working with trainers off to the side in order to get ready to return, and he was finally able to hit the practice field on Wednesday.

Although Leshoure did practice, he wasn't a full participant. He only took part in individual drills, and Jim Schwartz personally didn't consider Leshoure to actually be back as a result.

Based on that, I doubt we will see Leshoure play against the Baltimore Ravens on Friday. As pointed out by Dave Birkett, Leshoure still hasn't taken part in a padded practice, so it seems unlikely that they would throw him out there to take on the Ravens just a couple days after he returned to practice on a limited basis.
