Lions general manager Martin Mayhew is still waiting for the all-clear on the running back who saw his 2011 season cut short due to a concussion he suffered in Week 6 – his second within two months. “No, we have not gotten any word,” Mayhew said. “He was still being evaluated by people. But we are very optimistic with the preliminary reports we have.” Best wore Jahvid Best Jersey and played in six games last season, carrying the ball 84 times for 390 yards and two touchdowns. He wore Jahvid Best Jersey and also caught 27 passes for 287 yards and a touchdown. With last year’s second-round pick, Mikel Leshoure, recovering from a torn Achilles, Mayhew is dealing with uncertainty at running back, so the return of a healthy Best would be helpful. “I expect him to be back,” Mayhew said. “I expect him back. But that is not going to be my decision. I think at some point Jahvid and the doctors will say he can come back, and at that point, we will be glad to have him.” You can log on our Online NFL Shop and select our best quality Jahvid Best Jersey and Detroit Lions Jerseys if you are die-hard fans of Jahvid Best and Detroit Lions.
