No doubt in Best's mind that he'll return next season
Jahvid Best, remember him?
After missing the final 10 regular season games with a concussion, the Lions running back is fully expecting to be back next season.
“Right now I’m just focusing on getting back on the field. Right now that means staying in shape and getting ready for when the off-season program picks up,’’ Best said on Monday. “I’ll be ready to go with the rest of the guys.’’
The running game was certainly the weak link on the offense with the absence of Best. Also no one knows how good the run game could’ve been if rookie Mikel Leshoure had not torn his Achilles’ tendon in training camp.
Best said he hasn’t taken any concussion tests lately since his season ended when he was placed on injured reserve. He is staying in shape though.
He said he has no doubt he’ll be back next season. A healthy Best could make a difference.
