It's back-to-back practices for Leshoure, Broyles; Vanden Bosch eases back in
ALLEN PARK — It’s getting to a point where it will no longer be huge news when Mikel Leshoure practices.
Leshoure practiced today (Monday) in a back-to-back situation after going through practice on Sunday.
He’s not sure if he’ll be ready to play in the next preseason game which is on Saturday at the Oakland Raiders.
“I’m just trying to do whatever I need to do to get back, hopefully I can put a series of practices together to allow myself to go out and play but taking it day to day we don’t know, we’re going to see,’’ Leshoure said.
It’s critical that he see some preseason action since he hasn’t played in a game situation since college. And he will miss the first two regular season games due to suspension.
He’s missed much of this camp with a hamstring injury which happened on the second day of camp. Leshoure tore his Achilles early in training camp a year ago and missed the full season.
Monday was also a good day for wide receiver Ryan Broyles who played in Friday’s preseason game. It was his first back-to-back practice since the first few days of camp.
Also at Monday’s practice, Kyle Vanden Bosch participated in individual drills for the first time since injuring his knee two weeks ago.
Titus Young, who missed Sunday’s practice with soreness, was excused from Monday’s practice.
Defensive tackles Sammie Hill and Corey Williams were still out along with Andre Fluellen.
Linebacker Travis Lewis, who injured his quadriceps muscle in Friday’s win at Baltimore, also sat out.
Safety Louis Delmas (knee) is still out and coach Jim Schwartz said he is still week to week.
