Jahvid Best among the Lions who are back to work at practice facility
ALLEN PARK — Running back Jahvid Best had a little trouble getting into the Lions facility Tuesday morning. He pulled his black Cadillac CTS up to the gate to enter the player parking lot, but had forgotten the code.
No problem. He just used the front door.
Best was one of several Lions to get to the Lions practice facility when players were allowed back after 10 a.m. Matthew Stafford was a few minutes early and the first to arrive. He was followed by Cliff Avril, Kyle Vanden Bosch, Jeff Backus and Ashlee Palmer.
Best said he wasn’t sure what to expect on Tuesday.
“I have no idea, that’s why I’m here right now, get a schedule and get mentally prepared and see what happens,’’ Best said.
Most of last season — his rookie year — he was hobbled by turf toe. Rest was the best medicine
“I’m 100 percent and ready to go,’’ said Best whose toes looked fine in his flip-flops.
“I feel the same, doing everything I’ve been doing, I’m ready for everything,’’ he added.
Best didn’t wait until the deal was done to get into town. The players voted to approve the collective bargaining agreement on Monday afternoon.
“I was here Monday, I just had a feeling,’’ Best said.
Stafford and Vanden Bosch will speak at a press conference which is set to start at 11:45 a.m. Come back here for full details.
