Lions' Jahvid Best may never play football again


If it’s true, the Detroit Lions may have suffered a huge blow to its potent offense as Jahvid Best, the Lions’ first round draft pick in 2010, may have played his final game.

As reported by Sports-Kings today, Best, who has a long history of concussions, including two in his first two pro seasons, won’t be back with the Lions and may never play football again.

He left the week six game against the San Francisco 49ers (a loss at home) and was out for the remainder of the year. Though the LIons’ offense exploded via the arm of Matthew Stafford and the pass-catching of all-world wide receiver Calvin Johnson, the running game is an important part of the Lions’ offense and losing Best does not bode well for Detroit.
