Detroit Lions RB Mikel Leshoure missed the final two days of minicamp due to a personal issue.
Huddle Up: Leshoure has some baggage in his past, but there's no indication that his current absence is related to those issues. Meanwhile, Leshoure and whatever fantasy value he may cling to remain buried behind Reggie Bush and Joique Bell on the Detroit depth chart.

Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said RB Mikel Leshoure could get a bigger role under offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, because the New Orleans Saints used multiple running backs when Lombardi coached there.
Huddle Up: Just what fantasy owners need: Another Saints RB logjam. Leshoure only had 2 total touches for 9 yards this past season after racking up 249 for 1,012 in 2012, but if his totals increase, it will cut into the workloads of Reggie Bush and Joique Bell.

Detroit Lions RB Mikel Leshoure has accepted the backup role with the team, but is open to being traded to a team that would rely on him as more than a backup running back.
Huddle Up: If he played better he might have a bigger role. Right now Joique Bell is simply the better running back.
