Club president Tim Lewand said he has been in contact with commissioner Roger Goodell regarding the off-field troubles of second-year players Nick Fairley and Mikel Leshoure.

“We have been active in our participation with the league, we’ve handled the matter internally and we’ve made our thoughts known publicly about our expectations and the need for accountability and responsibility,” Lewand said. “Beyond that, it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to comment on details.”

Leshoure was arrested twice for marijuana possession charges in Southwest Michigan. He has paid his fines, is enrolled in the NFL’s substance abuse program and must pass a court-ordered drug test next year before the issue is fully resolved. Fairley was arrested once for marijuana possession and again Memorial Day weekend for a DUI. He has a court date July 31 in Mobile, Ala. Both players could be suspended up to four games next season.
