Lions | Running back a need

Fri, 02 Mar 2012 22:32:58 -0800

The Detroit Lions need to address their running back position during the NFL Draft or free-agent market. While RBs Jahvid Best (concussion) and Mikel Leshoure (Achilles') are under contract, the team enters the offseason without a clear No. 1 running back. If Best and Leshoure return at 100 percent, the Lions will be in good shape -- however, that is tough to bank on at this point in time. RBs Joique Bell, Jerome Harrison and Keiland Williams are also under contract.
