Best’s turf toe getting worse

The toe condition for RB Javid Best is getting worse, and it could cost the back more playing time as he has dealt with it since week three.

Even though the end result could be that his starting tailback will be at diminished capacity for two games instead of one, Lions coach Jim Schwartz defended his decision to play injured rookie Jahvid Best Sunday in Dallas. “We’re not trying to save anything for next week at all,” Schwartz said. “We’re not trying to play for next week. If a player can fill a role we’re going to have him out there. Nobody is 100 percent right now.” Best has been dealing with turf toe injuries on both of his feet since Week Three. Schwartz admitted Sunday and again on Monday that the injury was getting progressively worse.
