Lions running back Jahvid Best may not be out for the rest of the year, but he is likely to miss another week.
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.
