Report: Detroit's Jahvid Best Likely To Miss Game Against Broncos

Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best is expected to miss at least one more week due to a concussion, according to the Detroit Free Press. Best suffered the injury two weeks ago in the Lions’ first loss of the season against the San Francisco 49ers.

According to the paper, Best is no longer suffering from post-concussion headaches and is feeling “pretty normal.” The concussion was Best’s second of the year, the 22-year old had previously suffered one after a blow to the head in the NFL’s shortened pre-season. The versatile back also had a history of concussions during his college career at the University of California.

Last week it was reported that those close to Best had strongly advised him to consider sitting out the remainder of the year in the interest of his long-term health. According to the most recent reports, however, he may return as soon as Week 10. The Lions have a bye week following their match up this weekend against the Denver Broncos.

The running back has become a powerful offensive weapon for the emerging Lions. Last season in 16 games for Detroit he rushed for 555 yards and also tallied 58 receptions. Through six games this season he gained 390 yards on the ground while also pulling in 27 receptions.

The Lions lost their second straight game without Best last week, falling 16-23 to the Atlanta Falcons.
