Jahvid Best Injury: Lions Running Back Attending Voluntary Workouts

After an early end to his season due to a concussion last year, Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best attended the team's voluntary workouts this week with the intention of returning to play in the 2012-13 season. According to Anwar Richardson, Lions general manager Martin Mayhew confirmed that Best had been at the team's workouts in Allen Park. However, Mayhew could not confirm if Best had actually taken part in the workouts.

"I saw (Best) in the meeting room, but I haven't seen him working out," Mayhew said via Michigan local news website M Live. "From what I understand, he's been doing everything, as far as conditioning and working out with everybody."

It is public knowledge that Best has suffered several concussions over his career dating back to his time in college at California. The Lions have been unwilling to give updates about Best's recovery or a time table for his return.

While his attendance at the workouts is encouraging, questions still linger about his status moving forward.
