Lions' Jahvid Best Seems To Be Fine

There was some concern during Friday night's Lions-Browns game that Detroit running back Jahvid Best was being tested for a concussion. He took a couple of hits and fumbled on one of the first plays of the game, and the coaches kept him on the bench for the remainder of the night.

Following the game, Lions head coach Jim Schwartz downplayed the concerns over Best's health by making it sound like Best was removed from the game for precautionary reasons more than anything.

"I honestly don't have an update," Schwartz said after the game. "He got hit on the sideline on the one and he was a little woozy so we just kept him out of the game the rest of the way."

Best said he left the game because he "wasn't feeling right," but he's "not concerned at all." In fact, had this been a regular season game, Best says he would have continued playing.
