News: Leshoure took eight carries for 44 yards in Friday's preseason win but did have a fumble in Jacksonville territory late in the game. Impact: Such a major blunder given the time and situation won't reflect well on Leshoure, who is trying to win a roster spot. Leshoure's competition, George Winn, carried seven times for 13 yards and a touchdown. Winn didn't have a rush over four yards.(RotoWire, )

News: Leshoure is likely competing with George Winn for a roster spot, ESPN's Michael Rothstein reports. Impact: Leshoure said a few months ago that he expects to have a bigger role in the offense this season. However, 2013 sixth-round pick Theo Riddick seems to have emerged as the favorite for the No. 3 spot on the depth chart, leaving Leshoure to duke things out with George Winn. It may be that Leshoure still has a shot to work as the No. 3 running back, but his prospects for this season aren't particularly encouraging.(RotoWire, )
