DETROIT (WWJ) – The Detroit Lions ‏GM Martin Mayhew sent out a message regarding Jahvid Best Monday afternoon: “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.”

“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 medical and training staffs with the hope that he ultimately will be cleared to return to the playing field,” he said.
