The Lions have been through 13 practices and one preseason game since the last time running back Mikel Leshoure was on the practice field.
After missing all of last season with a torn Achilles tendon suffered in the second week of training camp, Leshoure was back on the mend just two days into training camp this year after injuring his hamstring in the Lions second practice of camp on July 28.
Leshoure made his return to practice this morning.
He said last week that he was close to returning and had begun running as part of his rehab. Leshoure is unlikely to play in Friday’s preseason game against the Ravens with just one practice under his belt in the last two weeks.
The Lions ran the ball well in its preseason opener against the Browns. Keiland Williams and Joique Bell combined for 160 yards on 25 carries as the Lions totaled 198 yards on 33 rushes.
Offensive tackle Jeff Backus, linebacker Stephen Tulloch and defensive tackle Corey Williams returned to practice after missing Tuesday’s session.
