The Detroit Lions wrapped up their preseason schedule with a 38-32 win over the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night, and they did so while avoiding any major injuries to players who are expected to contribute during the regular season. In fact, running back Mikel Leshoure returned from his struggles with injuries and put together a very nice game. Detroit's second-round draft pick from last year missed his rookie after tearing his left Achilles tendon during training camp and he missed some practice time early this year due to an injured right hamstring, but on Thursday he posted 43 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries in the win.
It remains to be seen how Leshoure may factor into the running back rotation during the regular season, but the positive production he flashed on Thursday left everyone feeling good.
