The Detroit Lions announced today they will place running Jahvid Best on season-ending injured reserve because of ongoing concussion problems. The move is not expected to become official until next week.
Running back Kevin Smith suffered a high ankle sprain against the Packers, and his availability for next week's game against the New Orleans Saints is in question
If Smith can't play against the Saints, Maurice Morris will start at running back, and the Lions likely will have to add another player at the position. Aaron Brown and DeShawn Wynn are among the running backs who’ve worked for the Lions already this year.
