Source: Jahvid Best likely out for week 10

ESPN - [Full Article]

Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best is unlikely to play against the Chicago Bears on Sunday as he continues to recover from his most recent concussion, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Best, who has dealt with concussions dating back to college, is scheduled to meet with more doctors this week and will undergo further testing, the source said.

Best has not played since experiencing concussion-like symptoms following Detroit's Week 6 loss to San Francisco.

Without Best, Detroit has gone to a running-back-by-committee look, deploying veteran Maurice Morris and second-year player Keiland Williams almost equally. The duo has rushed for 177 yards and one touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: 

It's not sounding good for Best, who has been out since week 6. This continues to be a week to week situation.
