    The Detroit Lions cleared the necessary roster space to add running back Mikel Leshoure back to the active roster off the suspended list by placing cornerback Drayton Florence on injured reserve.

    Florence suffered a broken forearm in the third quarter of the Lions' loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night. Despite remaining in the game, he required surgery for the injury on Monday.

    As part of a new league rule, the Lions have placed a designation on Florence that allows him to return to practice in six weeks and play in games after eight.
