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:

Lions RB Mikel Leshoure has accepted role as backup. But he's wide open to being traded to a team that would rely on him more.

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