07:05 AM ET 09.16 | Lions running back Mikel Leshoure sat inactive for a second consecutive game on Sunday, a status that may not change if Reggie Bush remains healthy. [Leshoure] would welcome a trade to a team that would rely on him more, a source told ESPN. Leshoure was inactive in last week's season opener despite averaging 4.5 yards per carry this preseason. ... The Lions are a pass-oriented team, and although Leshoure can catch the ball out of the backfield, he would prefer to be on a team that runs the ball more often, according to the source. Leshoure, who has accepted his role as a backup with the Lions, rushed for 798 yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie last season. One possible destination for the 23-year-old Leshoure is the Indianapolis Colts.

No need for the Lions to trade him. If you want to make and progress in the playoffs, you need depth. Having a 2nd good back will be essential for some games as the season goes on. The only reason to trade is if there is a position that really is lacking which can be resolved by the trade.

Send him to Seattle. They look like they're gonna keep running all year.

Just a matter of time before Squire Irsay tweets some more dribble. Last week he "Demanded " his team and coaches protect Luck better. I think he would be better served to " Demand " the last place schedule he had last year.

Not going anywhere. Cheap, quality, insurance at that position.

He was a 2nd round draft pick in 2011. Unless the Lions are offered a 2nd round pick for him, then they will just hang up the phone.

It's amazing that a pulled groin muscle and dislocated thumb is considered healthy. These guys may be whiny prima donnas but they sure know how to put up with pain.

the best way to protect your QB, if your o-lie has issues is a decent RB. that way The QB can use more play action and have a few more seconds to find an open receiver.

Saints will give you a Heisman Winner, Mark Ingram, for him. By the way, this is interesting.

What does the average Alabama player get on his SATs? Drool.

What does an Alabama player get when he shows up for his first practice? $$$$$

Bush is hurt. Silly idea to trade Leshoure.
