It’s been a long time coming, but on Sunday it’ll finally happen.

Running back Mikel Leshoure, a second-round pick in 2011, finally will play in a regular-season NFL game.

Leshoure missed all of his rookie season due to injury.  He was suspended for the first two games of the 2012 campaign after a pair of offseason arrests.

I’m just excited. I’m excited to get out there,” Leshoure said Friday, via Anwar Richardson of  “All my preparations, things I’ve been doing, offseason, and OTAs, camp, is finally here, and I’m finally going to get my chance to play in the NFL.”

Leshoure is expected to have a significant role against the Titans, especially since the Lions’ running game has been sputtering.

“I feel like I can bring power, short yardage, and get us some tough yards that can help our offense out,” Leshoure said. “We got a lethal passing game, and our running game is getting better.  I just want to help us out any way I can.”

One way to help is to stay out of trouble.  Though for many it’s an easy concept, for the Lions of late it’s far easier said than done.

    Just don’t go backwards. He did that a couple of times during the preseason.

    Hopefully he’s worth the wait. The last thing Detroit needs is another draft bust/young player on IR.
