Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best fumbled the ball... - [Full Article]

Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best fumbled the ball on his second carry of the game, but head coach Jim Schwartz said Best actually got hurt on his first running attempt.

In Detroit's 30-28 preseason win over the Cleveland Browns, Best was jammed up in the middle on this first attempt and then bounced it right and was tackled at the sideline. One play later, Best was held up at the line of scrimmage and had the ball knocked loose. He was removed from the game at that point.

"I honestly don't have an update," Schwartz said after the game. "He got hit on the sideline on the one and he was a little woozy so we just kept him out of the game the rest of the way."

When asked if Best was tested for a concussion, Schwartz said, "We took him out before we even did that."

"It was nothing bad, but I just wasn't feeling right so they told me to sit down," Best said. "I'm not concerned at all."
