Detroit Lions running back Mikel Leshoure had a prime opportunity to seize the lead dog spot in the backfield when Jahvid Best was not able to return due to his long-standing issue with concussions.
Unfortunately nagging issues with injuries and consistency forced the Lions to pick up Reggie Bush to assume that role after Leshoure did not live up to expectations in 2012.
Lions running back Mike Leshoure was absent from another day of organized team activities (OTAs) because of a nagging hamstring injury.
Leshoure has missed the past two weeks of OTAs due to his latest setback. Lions coach Jim Schwartz did not express major concern about Leshoure's hamstring, but said the injury has not healed as fast as he hoped.
According to the Detroit News, Lions safety Louis Delmas didn’t attend this week’s organized team activities as he continues to work on strengthening his knees.
“We’re in communication with Lou,” coach Jim Schwartz said. “He’s not here right now but there’s nothing he can get out of this because he can’t physically do the stuff we’re doing.”
