As the Detroit Lions get to ready to begin their offseason workouts on Monday, running back Jahvid Best will be in attendance and ready to go after missing 10 games in 2011 due to post-concussion symptoms.
Even though Best can participate in the workouts, he’s still not cleared to be a part of any type of on field contact, according to the Detroit Free Press.
Lions general manager Martin Mayhew remains optimistic that Best will be cleared and ready to play this coming season.
“We’re just waiting on final clearance with Jahvid,” Mayhew said. “It’s not like a hamstring where it’s a certain amount of time and a guy’s going to be ready. With the head you have to be careful and be smart. We’re not doing anything right now. There’s no need to rush to judgment on Jahvid’s situation. So we’re very optimistic. He’s doing very well. He feels great. He’s training right now and we’re looking forward to him being cleared.”Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
