|Following their win against the Broncos, the Lions take their turn in the examination room.|
Are the Lions going to get running back Jahvid Best back this season? I'm not sure if anyone knows the answer to that question. It's obviously taking some time for Best to recover from his second concussion in three months. The bye will give him a third week of recovery. Although every concussion is different and all are unpredictable, they typically fall into a couple of categories in the NFL. One requires perhaps a week or two of downtime before a return to the field. The other takes longer and begins to impact conditioning and other factors. If Best isn't ready to play when the Lions return from their bye, it will be fair to question the likelihood of a 2011 return. Monday, coach Jim Schwartz told reporters: "We'll see. It’s one of those things that you really can’t have a timetable on."
