Detroit Lions RB Mikel Leshoure was carted off the practice field today. Early reports are that he has torn his achilles and will go on season-ending IR. That's the ninth player to have blown out their achilles since training camps opened up two weeks ago. With this in mind, would Detroit consider talking to the Patriots about one of their running backs? Possibly, but I think an available free agent like Ricky Williams is more likely - although whatever RB the Pats do end up cutting could draw interest from the Lions in a few weeks.
