Lions' Best takes concussion test, hopes to return

Jahvid Best took his concussion test on Monday, the latest step in his attempt to return to the field.


Jahvid Best To PUP Rounds Out Lions' Roster Moves

The Detroit Lions placed running back Jahvid Best on the physically unable to perform list Monday, as the team made its final roster moves to adhere to the NFL's 75-player roster deadline. Best, who's still recovering from a major concussion suffered last season, can return after the first six games of the season.

To get to the 75 players, the Lions also put rookie conerback Chris Greenwood on the PUP list, placed offensive linemen Bill Nagy and Jonathan Scott on injured reserve and released wide receiver Dominique Curray and safety Isaac Madison.

Greenwood missed all of training camp after having abdominal surgery, while Nagy was recovering from an ankle injury. Scott was placed on IR after hurting his knee early in training camp.

Jahvid Best Injury: Lions RB Expected To Miss Week 10

The Detroit Lions will have to deal with another week of running back by committee. Once again, star running back Jahvid Best is expected to sit out, and the Lions will be without him when they face the Chicago Bears in Week 10. Best complained of concussion-like symptoms following the Week 6 game against the San Fransisco 49ers and has not played since. 

In Best's absence, the Lions have split carries between Maurice Morris and Keiland Williams. Best is one of three members of the Lions backfield currently unavailable to play, as Jerome Harrison and Mikel Leshoure are both out for the season. The Lions have run the ball well even without Best, averaging better than four yards per carry and racking up 100-plus yards on the ground in both games that he has missed.

Following the Chicago Bears' win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football, the Week 10 matchup between the Lions and the Bears is one of the biggest on the NFL schedule. Both teams are currently trailing the Green Bay Packers in the NFC North and should be involved in a tight NFC Wild Card race until the end of the season.
