Leshoure, 22, will forfeit four game checks as part of the punishment.

Lions president Tom Lewand said the team supports the decision, saying it expects every member of the organization 'to uphold a greater standard of behavior.'

Leshoure's punishment and Lewand's statement were both posted on a blog on the Lions' website.

The 2011 second-round draft pick missed all of last season after tearing his Achilles in practice.
