Detroit Lions running back Mikel Leshoure spoke to the media for the first time after it was announced that he would be suspended for the first two games of the regular season steaming from marijuana possession.
Leshoure handled the situation very well and said that he is learning from his mistakes and plans to move forward:
"You have to face what you do wrong. I know one thing for sure, one thing for certain I've learned from my mistakes, still putting it behind me. You've got to accept it and move forward, come back that third game and put it in the past,'' Leshoure said.
"My reaction was it's out of my hands. I can't do anything about it, don't sit here and linger over it just put it in the past, keep getting better this offseason and come back ready to play,'' Leshoure said.
