Source: Jahvid Best not expected to play Sunday at Denver

Lions lightning-quick running back Jahvid Best is likely to miss his second straight contest Sunday with a concussion, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, citing a person close to the former Golden Bear playmaker.

Best did not practice today, and it’s unknown whether or not he’ll travel with the club to Denver.

Coach Jim Schwartz was asked today how much it would help the Cal product’s recovery to take consecutive weeks off.

“It’s really yet to be seen,” he said. “But I think, again, I sort of press a button when I start talking about concussions — every one’s different. Some guys respond differently. And you can’t put any of them in a box.

“With those, you have to be objective, and we’re going to follow recommendations that the doctors give us, and as soon as we can, we’re going to get him back on the field.”
