Last season, Lions running back Mikel Leshoure said he wanted to play for a team willing give him the ball in the ground game after getting two carries in the entire 2013 season.
It doesn’t appear Detroit will be that place. Leshoure was sidelined for the last two days of minicamp over this “personal issue”, as head coach Jim Caldwell calls it.
“He did have a personal issue, let’s put it that way,” Caldwell said, via MLive.com. “We knew he was gone and what was happening. We were well aware of it.”
Although minicamp was voluntary, if he stayed, he might have made the coaching staff reconsider his position on the roster.
