Jahvid Best Cleared to Work Out


There is good news on the Jahvid Best injury front according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Here are the details:

The source said Best will be able to take part in the Detroit’s OTAs, minicamps and training camp. While Best hasn’t been cleared to return to football yet, the source would be “shocked” if Best isn’t able to fully participate.

The Lions’ approach to Jahvid Best’s health is most appropriately described as cautiously optimistic and this report confirms the validity of that approach.

What the Lions do at running back this offseason likely hinges on where Best’s health stands. The sooner he gets cleared for football activities the better and could put suggestions that the Lions look somewhere in the draft for a running back to rest.
