Mikel Leshoure returns from a two game suspension to the Lions lineup, but we will have to wait and see how the Lions deploy him against the Titans. He has limited action in preseason, but didn’t impress in that limited action. It will be difficult to come back from a torn Achilles and I’m not so sure he will be 100% at any point this season.
The Titans defense is ripe for the pickin’ as one of the worst defenses in the whole NFL, but I will reserve the right to sit back and watch Mikel on Sunday.
