While Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best has said he would “definitely” be back next season, the team is exploring other options at running back through the draft.

The Lions interviewed several running backs during the Senior Bowl this week, according to mlive.com.

Best has battled an array of concussion and head injuries, and lost most of last season due to a concussion. He also had been reportedly taken off several teams’ draft boards in 2010 due to his history, including an ugly injury on Nov. 7, 2009, when he landed on the back of his head while playing for California against Oregon State.

The Lions have talked to Boise State running back Doug Martin, Washington running back Chris Polk and Ohio State running back Daniel Herron, according to mlive.com.
