    Mayhew releases statement saying Best will not be released to play

    After today's consultation with medical experts, including representatives from our medical and training staffs, it has been determined that Jahvid will not be permitted to return to play at this time," Lions General Manager Martin Mayhew said.

    "Throughout this entire process we always have placed the highest priority on what is best for Jahvid from a health and safety standpoint," Mayhew continued. "While today's decision is disappointing from a football perspective, we fully and entirely respect and support this recommendation.

    "Jahvid will continue to work with our medial and training staffs with the hope that he ultimately will be cleared to return to the playing field."

    This is getting real annoying

    Yeah Best is done with football. Sad for us fans, but his health is more important. I really wanna know what tests he did an what he failed though. I would like to see the process of all this. If after a year he is still showing signs I would think he might be like that for the rest of his life.

    Read a couple weeks ago they may just be keeping him on to get him another year to help with future benefits once he's out of football (don't know how accurate it is, but it makes sense).

    Sucks to see, but I would assume he'll try again to get cleared at the end of the season and if not, he retires. Must be some serious damage done to his brain in order for this to be the case. Wish him the best of Luck in the future (no pun intended). Really wish he could of had a longer career, hopefully he's still able to,

    edit: Just saw Anwar post it again

    I was told for months that #Lions RB Jahvid Best wouldn't play. This year was about getting him another #NFL season for benefits.

    it would be cool if we were to get into the playoffs and he came back. man this really sucks. it feels like he died. he was a key part to our offense and now he's just gone.
