The Detroit Lions have released RB Jahvid Best today. Best has been riddled with injuries in his entire football career. He struggled with injuries at Cal and never was able to shake away those injury issues when he moved to the NFL. Sadly this could be the end of the young runningback’s career. He has been bothered by concussions and that is nothing to play around with.
Best had 1,042 yards from scrimmage with 58 catches and six total touchdowns as a rookie for the Lions. He had a ton of potential, but the injuries caught up to him and he might not get another chance to fulfill that potential. It was fun watching him when he was on the field, but some things have to come to an end.
