Mikel Leshoure has yet to receive a carry for the Detroit Lions through three games. The former second-round pick was reportedly open to moving to a different team in a trade for more playing time.
ESPN insider Adam Schefter explained on Sunday, Sept. 15, that Mikel Leshoure has accepted his role, but that he wouldn't mind a fresh start where he would be a more prominent contributor:

Leshoure later denied that he would 'welcome' a trade.
