Lions Take The 1st Of At Least 2 Hits From NFL

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) – The Detroit Lions took a hit to their roster Wednesday and another one could be coming in what has turned into an offseason marred by off-field trouble.

Running back Mikel Leshoure, whose power complements the speedy Jahvid Best, was suspended for two games without pay and will have to give up two more game checks for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy.

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.
