Jahvid Best Injury: Lions GM Martin Mayhew Expects Detroit RB Will Be Cleared For Contact In June

Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew expects that running back Jahvid Best will be cleared for full contact practice in June, according to Lions reporter Tim Twentyman.

Best suffered a season-ending concussion in week six against San Francisco last season and has been plagued by concussion problems throughout his career, dating back to his college football at California. He has participated in team workouts and conditioning exercises as he slowly attempts to return to the field.

Detroit drafted best in 2010 and he has 255 carries fo 945 yards and six touchdowns in his two professional seasons.
