Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports that Best is likely to miss Sunday’s game against the Broncos. Best missed practice Wednesday and this decision seems like a no brainer with a Week Nine bye coming up.
A source close to Best tells Birkett that the second-year running back’s headaches have mostly subsided.
Detroit actually ran the ball fairly well without Best against Atlanta, averaging more than five yards-per-carry. Their passing game — and pass protection — was the bigger problem.
