Detroit Free Press - [Full Article]

Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best is healed from turf toe in both feet. After about an eight-week break at the end of last season, he began working out lightly in February, then going hard in March.

"Unless it's the same thing, the same kind of hits happen again, you can't be cured from it," Best said of turf toe, which is the spraining of toe ligaments. "I can't get it again. I'm just praying that it won't happen again. But as far as lingering from last year, there's no way."

Fantasy Impact: 

The Lions are building the type of offense that fantasy owners can trust, and Best will be a big part of that. Although the Lions drafted Mikel Leshoure, Best will see lots of work and has the potential to be a top twenty fantasy back.
