Mikel Leshoure injury update: Ankle tweak puts his fantasy value in doubt

Leon Halip

Detroit Lions running back Mikel Leshoure (ankle) was held out of Wednesday's practice. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions running back Mikel Leshoure was held out of Wednesday's practice, via Tim Twentyman. The Lions' tailback made the team's injury report, listed with an ankle injury.

There is still a chance that Leshoure practices on Thursday or Friday, but now there is reason to doubt his availability for Week 13. On Sunday, the Lions will host Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Analysis: Leshoure tweaked his ankle last game and was unable to finish went the game went into an overtime period. Now that he's missed Wednesday's practice, there is some concern regarding his value.

Leshoure could still practice this week, but it could be Joique Bell that gets the reps this Sunday against the Colts. Monitor Leshoure's status but consider him a game-time decision. If he is active, he could be a decent flex against the Colts D on Sunday.
