Adam Schefter: Jahvid Best Has Grade Two Turf Toe

From Adam Schefter:

Lions RB Jahvid Best has grade two turf toe and is considered day to day. He should be ready this week unless pain is unbearable.

Below are the symptoms of a grade two turf toe.

Grade 2: Possible popping sound when the injury occurs; tenderness, moderate swelling, bruising, and loss of motion; partial tear of the capsule and ligaments; no injury to the joint surface

The timetable to return from a grade two turf toe is one day to two weeks, according to Core Performance. That means that Best could be back this week if, as Schefter said, the pain is not unbearable. If it is too painful to play against Green Bay, then look for him to be back next week against St. Louis.
