Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best previously said he was ready to hit the football field in training camp, but what remains unknown is when it might happen.

Last month, Best said he planned to visit his doctor in July to get clearance to participate in contact drills during training camp, but when reached on Thursday afternoon, the running back's representatives declined to say if he has been cleared.

The lack of response by Best's representatives may or may not mean be a cause for concern.

Best's reps may not want to reveal his medical condition because they want his health to remain a privacy issue. They also may not want to talk about it because he still is not ready for contact.

While his condition is currently unknown, it will definitely be a major question when players report for training camp next week.
