Jahvid Best expects to return to Detroit Lions off PUP

Jahvid Best expects to be ready to return to the Detroit Lions when he's eligible to come off the physically unable to perform list next month.

"Yes," Best said Wednesday, via the Detroit Free Press. "My mind frame hasn't changed since the beginning."

"Just let it play out," Best said of his time on the PUP list. "There's no point of really stressing over it. There's nothing I can do about it now. Just let it play out. And when I get cleared, get back out there and do what I do best."

Best hasn't played since suffering a concussion against the San Francisco 49ers on Oct. 16. It was his second concussion of the season. If he's cleared by doctors, the earliest Best could be back this season is Oct. 22 against the Chicago Bears.

The biggest question is if Best will be allowed to return to the field. He reported himself as "symptom-free" during training camp, but he still landed on the PUP. Best remains optimistic, but it remains to be seen if anything actually changes between now and next month.
