Jahvid Best Will Likely Remain On PUP List To Start Season, According To Report

This shouldn't come as a huge surprise to anybody at this point, but the Detroit Lions are not likely going to have running back Jahvid Best to start the regular season. He has been on the PUP list since the beginning of training camp, and it appears that he is going to remain on the PUP list going into the regular season. At least that is what Adam Schefter reported on Wednesday afternoon:

Considering he still hasn't been cleared for contact from a concussion that happened last October, it would be surprising if Best suddenly returns to practice in the next couple of weeks. If he doesn't and remains on the PUP list to start the regular season, he will be out at least the first six games. After six games, the Lions would have to decide to either activate him or keep him out for the rest of the regular season. Obviously, the hope would be that the extra time results in him being cleared, but there are obviously no guarantees.
