Recommendation: This isn't unexpected, but it is a bit disappointing. Draft day is approaching in most leagues, and it's pretty hard to nail down Leshoure's value. On one hand you have a guy we haven't even seen in an exhibition game, who is coming off of a major injury and is suspended for the first two games. On the other hand you have a talented 2011 second-round pick who is competing for carries with notoriously fragile backs Kevin Smith and Jahvid Best. Best's continued absence due to concussion symptoms only adds to the intrigue here.
Update: Leshoure (hamstring) will not play in the Lions' first preseason game Friday, Dave Birkett of The Detroit Free Press reports.
