Mikel Leshoure - out for the season

Postby scottaa1 » Mon Aug 08, 2011 10:56 am

Per Rotoworld:

Mikel Leshoure is out for the season after tearing his Achilles' tendon in Monday's practice.Leshoure was expected to serve as a power back and short-yardage complement to starter Jahvid Best. Now the second-round pick is facing a full year of rehab after suffering one of the most severe injuries an athlete can have. With only Maurice Morris and Aaron Brown now left as backups, Best's projected touches get a nice boost. He could also even see some goal-line work. Aug 8, 11:37 AM


Sorry about your luck, kid.

A buddy of mine just accepted an offer to trade away Leshoure this weekend. While he's not celebrating an injury, he feels he dodged a bullet on this one.

Leshoure for Spiller, Helu, Knox

Pretty beefy trade.

As a side note, does anyone remember the last time an RB tore an achilles tendon and came back successfully? Me either. Andre Brown was the last one and he's probably not going to make the 53 man roster this year.

It's TOUGH for sure. Pretty much a 12-24-month window to full recovery from what I've heard in general terms, and it's pretty tough to be sidelined for that long and recover your burst, etc. - could he come back? Sure, I guess so, and I wouldn't go cutting him in non-salary cap dynasties, but other than that it's a crappy, crappy deal. Not as bad as it is for him, obviously, but his owners/potential owners need to jettison him in all but the deepest of dynasties !+)
