As expected, Jahvid Best is in uniform and on the field for the Lions tonight in Buffalo. But it’s still significant — and not just for fantasy owners — because it amounts to the first sighting of the running back in a while.
Best suffered a concussion on a helmet-to-helmet hit from Browns CB Joe Haden on the Lions’ first play from scrimmage two weeks ago in Cleveland. He returned to practice this week.
It appears tonight’s look at Best was brief. Along with QB Matthew Stafford, Best didn’t come out for the Lions’ second series, and he was replaced by Aaron Brown. Best touched the ball twice, rushing for 2 yards. We don’t expect to see him again.
