Seems odd that Lions' Best hasn't been cleared for contact yet
ALLEN PARK — Jahvid Best, who is coming off a concussion, has not been cleared for contact yet.
That seems odd to me.
Coach Jim Schwartz said this morning that the decision involved a battery of tests, not just a single maneuver. With training camp starting on Friday, it seems they would have gotten this all sorted out.
Best was cleared to participate in Organized Team Activities and minicamp, but both of those were non-contact.
Schwartz would not rule out the possibility that he will be ready to go on Friday and would not put any odds on it either.
One good thing about the Lions, is they are always cautious when it comes to returning players to the field following any kind of injury.
If Best doesn’t take the field on Friday, it’s not necessarily a setback but at the same time not a good sign either.
