Lions running back Jahvid Best said over the weekend that he isn’t worried about concussions ending his career.
There seem to be plenty of people worrying about that for him. Best has seen or spoken to many doctors since the concussion that ended his 2011 season and he continues to consult with them while waiting for the green light to resume his NFL career.
Commissioner Roger Goodell was at Lions camp on Thursday and said that the league is monitoring Best’s condition “very closely,” although he said that the league isn’t making any push to influence the date Best is cleared to return to football.
