Leshoure Dealing With Upcoming Suspension

Mikel Leshoure took the handoff from Matthew Stafford. He made two quick jukes and then burst through the line and sprinted toward the end zone.

There was a roar and his teammates rushed to congratulate him.

Granted, this was the final day of minicamp last week, nobody was wearing pads and there was no hitting. But it was the first time Leshoure carried the ball in a live team drill and that alone was cause for celebration.

“The thing that was most encouraging about it, when the ball went in his hands he didn’t think about it,” coach Jim Schwartz said. “We ran him left and we ran him right and he was making cuts off defenders. He was making cuts as they appeared. He was a running back. He wasn’t doing rehab. He wasn’t doing foot patterns. He wasn’t controlling the action. He was reacting to the defense.
