Mikel Leshoure: Lions Focusing On Getting Him Ready for Week 3
Update: As Leshoure continues to deal with a hamstring strain, the Lions are focusing on having him ready to play by Week 3, the Detroit News reports.

Recommendation: Leshoure, who is suspended for the first two games of the regular season, reiterated Wednesday that his hamstring issue was a strain and not a tear. Still, it's kept him out since the second day of training camp, though on the plus side, Leshoure has been running as part of his rehab and falls into the day-to-day category these days. Given his injury, plus the lingering absence of Jahvid Best, Kevin Smith continues to creep up in value, as he seems likely to be the Lions' Week 1 starter at running back.
