Jahvid Best Reportedly Will Miss Sunday's Game

Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best has missed two games since suffering his second concussion since August. The concussion happened against the San Francisco 49ers, and he was out against the Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Best will miss his third game on Sunday, when the Lions play the Chicago Bears. Schefter reports that Best is "unlikely to play" and will meet with "more doctors" this week.

Best, who has dealt with concussions dating back to college, is scheduled to meet with more doctors this week and will undergo further testing, the source said.

I suppose it's no coincidence that this news came out shortly after the Lions signed running back Kevin Smith. They were in need of more depth at the running back position, and Smith is someone who knows the offense and should be ready to play on Sunday. Maurice Morris and Keiland Williams will likely get the bulk of the carries, but Smith could see some playing time as well.
