It has been a year since Jahvid Best last played in the NFL. Yet, the running back believes he will be able to resume his career. Best has been out since Nov. 16 of 2011 after suffering a concussion. After being honored with the Ed Brock award Best spoke saying he is hopeful of returning to football. Best said “They told me I can’t say this season but they didn’t shut the door,” “Me as a person, I’m a glass half full kind of guy. If you don’t shut the door then there’s still a way.” Best is also not letting the missed 2012 season bother him. “To me it’s just a minor setback and I’m still working and still staying ready because when I do get my chance I’m going to be ready. While Best believes he is symptom free he has yet to find a doctor who will clear him to play. The Lions were hopeful that he would return to the team at some point this season but that will not happen. The Ed Brock award is given to a player of each team for exemplify commitments to the principles of sportsmanship
