Jahvid Best RB DET Oct 15 '1219 Comments
The Lions announced Monday that Jahvid Best (concussions) will not play football this season.
Detroit's offensive backfield will be Mikel Leshoure the rest of the way, with some Joique Bell mixed in. Doctors seemed conflicted on whether to medically clear Best, and the Lions ultimately made the likely-wise decision to shut him down for 2012. Best has suffered four concussions dating back to his final season at Cal. He's stated he won't give up trying to play football, but for now the outlook isn't pretty. Best can be dropped in all re-draft leagues. Only deep-league Dynasty owners can keep holding out hope.
