This one hurts. How do you guys think the Lions will fare with this injury?

This sucks. But lets not forget we have Maurice Morris, and haven't seen Aaron Brown in a year too. Sucks not to see the 2nd round pick, but i dont think its a critical blow.

Leshoure was a great pick for you guys and I was jealous as hell when you got him.
Luckily, RB is the easiest position to replace, and for you guys, it happened so early.

We lost our guy Ryan Grant in the opener last year, as you know, and that was A) too late to address in camp of course, but worse, B) too damn late for my fantasy football team!

I hate snapped achilles as much as torn ACLs. They scare the heII out of me because they can happen to anyone, anytime.

Dan Marino, Dominique Williams, Danny Manning, Vinnie Testaverde..... who else has had these?

I had a fantasy draft yesterday and drafted Leshoure. Kevin Jones got me the last time I did that too! Never ever ever taking a Lions RB again.

Is it at all possible that we sign Lawrence Maroney?

I would love to pick up Jerome Harrison as a replacement. Too bad Bush already signed his tender.

This hurts especially short yardage. Best must must must must must stay healthy.

Hope the achilles doesn't linger. Get well for 2012 LeShoure.

This hurts. Top three draft picks have all been injured. I agree with going after Jerome Harrison. Apparently Tashard Choice might be available. Maurice Morris, Aaron Brown, and Stefan Logan should be able to spell Best if we can't sign anyone. I'm not panicking until Stafford, Best, or Calvin get hurt. The offensive line isn't looking too pretty either.

Its a big blow but as long as Best can stay healthy then you can work around it. It just puts alot of pressure on Best now as thereis no room for error with him. If it would have happend a few days earlier a FA could have been signed.

The running game was the only anemic part of the Lions' attack in their game against Cincy. Give Harrison and Bell another couple weeks of reps with the starters and hope they make some contributions behind Best.

If Jerome Harrison can do what he did the final month or so of the 2009 season with THE BROWNS, he should be able to do great with your offense.

He's a fantasy sleeper for me tomorrow in my draft.

What's the word on Leshoure's recovery?

I have a new dynasty league draft coming up & just wondering if he'd be worth taking a chance on with a mid-to-late round pick.

I traded up for him in a rookie draft in another dynasty league last year.... about an hour before he blew out his achilles.

+rep for any info!

Thanks
