Detroit Free Press - [Full Article]

Lions running back Mikel Leshoure is eligible to return to the 53-man roster today, after serving his two-game suspension.

The Lions have to make a roster move to clear space for Leshoure, who’s expected to take over as the starter before long.

Fantasy Impact: 

Kevin Smith and Joique Bell will likely still be in the mix for work, but this is yet another indication that those close to the team feel LeShoure will eventually be in line for the most work. We'll still have to see how the workload sorts itself out, at least for next week, but if LeShoure is on your wire he seems like a guy to pick up as everyone is hurting for running backs.
