Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best is anticipating the results of Monday's concussion tests to arrive on Friday. Those results could clear him for contact which would then allow him to play in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. Best has not suffered any residual symptoms in months. "I've been working out like an animal, I had nothing else to do," Best said. "As far as being in physical shape I'm ready to go."
Best is certainly worth an add if he's available in your league. You can stash him in an injured reserve slot if your league has that feature. The difficult projection here is where he fits in with the offense. The Lions have been using RB Mikel Leshoure , Joique Bell , and Kevin Smith earlier in the season. That doesn't leave much room for Best, but it should go without saying that the former Cal star is the most talented runner in this group.
