Jahvid Best Hopes To Return As Soon As Possible

Ever since Jahvid Best suffered his second concussion since August a few weeks ago, speculation has been swirling about when the Lions will get him back. Because concussion issues are nothing new for Best, there have been rumblings that he could miss the rest of the season. I personally thought that assessment was a bit of an overreaction, but it is concerning that there doesn't seem to be any indication about when Best will return.

With the Lions on a bye week, no evaluations are taking place since there is no game on Sunday. Best said on Saturday that he is feeling fine, but he'll need to be reevaluated next week and pass concussion tests before he's allowed to take the field again. Best also said that he wants to play as soon as he can and that his past concussions aren't a concern for him going forward.

"I don’t have any concerns," he said. "As long as I feel fine, and I feel fine so I don’t really care about the numbers right now."

Hopefully the extra week off will allow Best to be 100 percent healthy next week when the Lions take on the Bears. He won't be rushed back, as evidenced by him being out the last two games, but if he's feeling fine, hopefully he will pass his concussion tests and be good to go in Chicago next Sunday.
