Leshoure ran for 46 yards and one score on 15 attempts Saturday in a 31-18 loss to Atlanta.||||||| Leshoure is up to 741 yards as a rookie heading into a Week 17 matchup with the Bears.
Posted Nov. 05, 2012
Leshoure ran for 70 yards and three touchdowns as the Lions turned in their most complete victory of the season, 31-14 over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.||||||| Leshoure scored on runs of 7, 1 and 8 yards, becoming the first back in franchise history to run for three touchdowns in the first half. Not even Hall of Famer Barry Sanders accomplished that feat.
Posted Sept. 23, 2012
The Detroit Lions are starting Leshoure at running back against the Tennessee Titans in his first NFL game after a torn left Achilles tendon wiped out his rookie season and a two-game suspension delayed his second.||||||| Leshoure was a second-round draft pick out of Illinois in 2011, and he is starting Sunday instead of Kevin Smith.
Posted Aug. 15, 2012
Leshoure is back at practice after recovering from a right hamstring injury.||||||| Leshoure has missed most of training camp because of the injury, but he was on the field Wednesday with the team. The Lions could use a healthy Leshoure because running back Jahvid Best is still out with concussion problems.
Posted June 13, 2012
Leshoure was suspended for two games without pay Wednesday and will have to give up two more game checks for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. He can participate in training camp and preseason games while suspended before being eligible on Monday, Sept. 17, to be on the roster. The Lions likely will have two more players punished by the league. Defensive tackle Nick Fairley was arrested twice and offensive tackle Johnny Culbreath had one run-in with the law.||||||| Leshoure pleaded guilty to marijuana possession in May after police discovered him with pot in his mouth during a traffic stop in southwestern Michigan. That happened on March 12, less than a month after police in a different Berrien County community say they caught Leshoure with marijuana. Detroit drafted the former Illinois standout in the second round last year and he missed his rookie season because he tore his left Achilles tendon in training camp.
