Lions running back Jahvid Best is only 23 years old, he feels great and yet he cannot get doctors to clear him to return to football, raising doubts about whether he will be cleared to play not only this season, but ever again.
Doctors who have examined him don't want to be responsible for him, which is why none has signed off on him returning to football. It's also the reason the Lions haven't taken Best off the physically unable to perform list, something they have until Nov. 5 to do.
It has been more than one full year since Best suffered his last concussion. He has been recovering, working out, and he said he feels he is ready to return to practice. But doctors and Lions officials do not. Nothing more will change with Best's condition, which is why some now wonder whether he has played his last NFL down.
At this point, Best can be dropped in all but the deepest dynasty leagues.
