Mikel Leshoure says he’s learned his lesson after marijuana arrests

Mikel Leshoure, who has more marijuana arrests (two) than games played (zero) since the Lions drafted him in the second round last year, is making good progress in recovery from a torn Achilles tendon. And he says he’s also learned a lesson after twice getting caught with pot this year.

I put it in the past, man,” Leshoure told the Detroit Free Press. “I’m moving on and learning from my mistakes, and I’m going to leave it at that. Lessons have been learned.”

The Achilles that he tore at the start of training camp last year isn’t completely healed, but Leshoure said after the first day of organized team activities that it’s getting close.

“I didn’t do much, but it felt good to be back, back with my teammates, back out on the field,” Leshoure said. “Still got a ways to go, but we’re not pushing it and not in a rush for anything.”

Leshoure says he’s certain he’ll be on the field in the Lions’ regular-season opener against the Rams.

    It’s much better that he get drunk in his free time instead of smoking that devil drug

    Funny how he never actually says he’s done smoking pot; he just says “Lessons have been learned”. Which lessons exactly? Just another dysfunctional cog in the sinking Titanic that *was* the Lions comeback.

    Back to the basement with ya!

    Note to self:
    Quit getting caught.

    It will never cease to amaze me how these guys will risk pissing away millions of dollars to get high.

    What he learned was that he should smoke the devilweed in the comfort and safety of his living room and not in his car driving down the road,or out in public where the police can nab him for possession again,after two times caught I really dont think he is smart enough to give it up or keep it private at home though,just a matter of time before we hear from him and the devilweed once again.

    “Mikel Leshoure says he’s learned his lesson after marijuana arrests.”

    The message he took from it is: “Don’t get caught”

    Kids will be kids. Ricky Williams clone. (as in pot head).

    You forget he’s in detroit, where wake and bake is the breakfast of champions.

    puhhhhlease…until the next time?

    Surprise! Another disparaging article on the Lions from MDS, and lots of lame followup joke attempts by his mindless cronies.

    You’d rather regurgitate dead pointless stories than report something good. How about writing about how Stafford donated a MNF travel package for a children’s hospital charity, then bought it back for $15,000 during the auction and gave it to one of the sick kid’s families? Because you can’t stand to say anything nice about anyone on this team. I guess bashing people gets you more views and makes you feel smug.

    The NFC North has issues lately. John Jolley DT of the Green Bay Packers just released from prison for a narcotics conviction. Chicago Bears wide reciever arrested for selling narcotics. Mikel Leshoure on probation for marijuana.

    I must print a retraction, as I was not able to be online yesterday due to my work schedule, and I discovered MDS did cover the Stafford charity story. I can man up and admit I spoke out of turn this time!
    In my defense, if positive articles were more frequent and denigrating ones less frequent, I would not automatically leap the kind of assumption I previously made. Please keep unbiased reporting flowing, if you can change then so can I!

    How exactly is he badmouthing him?? And the Stafford story was posted yesterday. If your so passionate about your team not getting bad press then write a letter to them and plead with them to stop getting busted for drugs and sucker punching teamates

    Another deluded fan who thinks that the big bad PFT picks on their favorite {insert team or player}. First it was Favre fan, then Panther fan, then Falcons fan (does anyone actually care about the Falcons???), then Jests fan, Raider fan, Jags fan, Tebow fans, Vikes fan, Saint fan, and now another deluded Lions fan. Seriously, people, get a clue. PFT picks on everyone equally. Want to stay out of the news? Just hope your favorite {insert team or player} stops being clowns and making fools of themselves.

    Sudz28- ur an idiot if u think a Rb that didn’t play is putting us backwards! Guarantee My Lions finish higher than whoever ur team may be! Increase ur knowledge b4 anymore retardation flows out that stupid trap of yours!

    For anyone that thinks pot is bad, I laugh at you.

    If I was LeShore, I’d be mad that I got caught. But Pot doesn’t really effect you negatively. He’s not potentially overdosing on pain meds, or driving a vehicle ‘sauced’ like Knowshon.

    He’s simply smoking and chilling out. I highly doubt any criminal acts are committed by LeShore while he’s high. Chances are he’s laughing his ass off and relaxing.

    I see the problem with Players using pot, it’s against the rules. If I was getting poss tested for a job I’d stop smoking to work, but to the people acting like pot is bad for you, your highly mistaken.
