Second Round Draft Pick From Illinois
Tim Twentyman reported via Twitter that Mikel LeShoure tore his Achilles’ tendon and will miss the 2011 season. Per Coach Schwartz, LeShoure is expected to have surgery tomorrow.
LeShoure’s injury is a huge blow to the Lions’ offense as they now need to fill the short yardage and four minute offense void. No word on if the Lions plan to sign somebody, swing a trade or replace from within.
