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.
