Lions' Jahvid Best Cleared To Practice?

Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best missed his third straight day of practice due to the concussion he suffered last week against the Cleveland Browns. Despite being out, Lions head coach Jim Schwartz has maintained that he expects Best to return soon, and now it appears the second-year player from Cal could be back as soon as tomorrow.

It seems Best will be able to practice as long as he doesn't experience a setback from now until tomorrow morning's practice. Concussions are a tricky thing, especially for a player who has had them in the past, so there's no guarantee he will be good to go on Wednesday, but the above tweet is encouraging.

If Best is back in action tomorrow, the Lions will have really gotten the best-case scenario for his recovery. Concussions can sometimes keep players out for months, so to get Best back less than a week later would be very good news.
