Lions put Jahvid Best on active/PUP list as camp starts
ALLEN PARK — It’s discouraging news that Lions running back Jahvid Best has been placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list before the start of training camp.
It is not clear if Best, who is coming off a concussion last season, was not cleared to have contact or if the evaluations haven’t been completed. He participated in offseason drills which were non-contact.
This does not mean he will miss any of the season. He’s allowed to come off PUP at any time during training camp.
Best was a big medical question mark along with running backs Mikel Leshoure (coming off Achilles’ surgery) and Kevin Smith (ankle injury).
Also on the PUP list are rookies Ryan Broyles, Chris Greenwood and Ronnell Lewis, along with T Jonathan Scott.
