Detroit Lions running back Mikel Leshoure , who missed his entire rookie season because of a ruptured Achilles tendon, will be arraigned Monday on a marijuana possession charge, the Detroit Free Press reported.

According to the Free Press, this is the second time in two months Leshoure has faced marijuana charges. On Feb. 18, he was cited during a traffic stop for possession of marijuana. Earlier, he had pleaded to a lesser charge of using marijuana. He paid a fine on the first charge.

On March 12, Leshoure also was involved in a traffic stop as a passenger, and an officer told the Free Press that Leshoure was viewed by police trying to eat marijuana to avoid being charged.

A second-round pick in the 2011 draft out of Illinois, Leshoure sustained the season-ending Achilles injury during training camp.
