Leshoure, a second-round draft pick out of Illinois, tore his Achilles tendon when he was hit by defensive end Cliff Avril in practice. “He’ll be back,” Coach Jim Schwartz said, “but it won’t be this season.”

Leshoure could have surgery as soon as tomorrow. Defensive tackle Nick Fairley, the 13th pick overall in the NFL Draft, is out after having foot surgery and wide receiver Titus Young, who was out last week, returned today.
