The Detroit Free Press acknowledged that Jahvid Best's (concussions) career is likely over, and the Lions are on the search for his replacement.

Doctors have refused to clear Best to take more hits after suffering two concussions in 2011. The Lions also have seemed to move on, and GM Martin Mayhew reiterated that he needs to find "that shifty back that can come in and be that change-of-pace guy who can catch passes out of the backfield." Detroit has been keeping a close eye on running backs as they coach the South team at the Senior Bowl.
