Will Jahvid Best return after Bye Week at Chicago?

The status of Lions running back Jahvid Best is up in the air with the club heading into their Bye week, according to Chris McCosky of the Detroit News.

The lightning-quick former Golden Bear standout missed his second straight contest Sunday after suffering a second concussion in three months against the 49ers in Week 6.

On Monday, coach Jim Schwartz said he was uncertain whether or not he expected Best to be back after the Bye to play in Chicago on November 13.

“We’ll see,” he said. “You can’t have a timetable on these things. We’ve gone through it with Justin Durant and Tony Scheffler. Some come back quickly and some last longer.”

“The one thing we will be sure to do is be objective and listen to the people who are the experts in these decisions,” Schwartz said. “Like I’ve said a hundred times, it’s not something you can put tape on or tough out. We have to be conservative.”

When asked if there was a point where he’d consider putting Best on injured reserve, Schwartz again deferred.

“That would be listening to the people who know more about these things than me,” he said. “You evaluate every player on a week-by-week basis.”
