    I'm sure it'll get moved, but I know how many zoners wanted this guy in the draft.

    Lions rookie Leshoure to miss season with torn AchillesNFL.com Wire Reports
    Published: Aug. 8, 2011 at 11:05 a.m.

    Detroit Lions running back Mikel Leshoure will miss his entire rookie season with a torn Achilles' tendon suffered during Monday's practicen, the Detroit Leshoure was carted off the team's practice field after being hit high by defensive end Cliff Avril.

    Leshoure grabbed his left ankle when he was being looked at by the training staff. Trainers also worked on his calf and foot.

    The Lions were counting on the second-round pick from Illinois to provide power in the backfield to go along with the speedy Jahvid Best.

    Detroit's starting offensive tackles and a key backup also are recovering from injuries.

    Looks like the Cowboys could have a trading partner in Detroit for Choice if they decide to trade him.

    I think this is a guy the Cowboys liked a lot in the draft. Hate to see he's loosing an entire year to injury.

    Choice would be a nice fit there for a late pick. Good inside runner who would compliment Best well.

    Scary part of training camp, hate to see anyone miss the season before the season even starts. But we know it is going to happen.
