The Lions issued a statement early Monday night: “After today’s consultation with medical experts, including representatives from our medical and training staffs, it has been determined that Jahvid will not be permitted to return to play at this time,” Lions General Manager Martin Mayhew said.

Link says "at this time" but all other reports saying he won't play this year. Either way it sucks for Best, he was on his way to something last year. Hopefully it doesn't end his career.

I have a feeling he won't be able to come back to the NFL ever. Such a shame. He is such an exciting player to watch.

As I'm not a doctor, could someone provide a layman's terms explanation of how a concussion such as this can keep an individual out for as long as Best has been out? Is it basically like if he sustains another concussion, his brain might just turn to mush?

This really sucks for Best and the Lions. Best was on his way to being one of the best pass-catching RBs in the league and a solid runner to boot, but his concussions have piled up now. He and LeShoure would have been perfect complements as well.

He's already had quite a few. Speaking from experience, post concussion symptoms can last for months.

He'd honestly be best served calling it a career. Pushing it any further is just asking for long term problems.

The short answer is that it affects everyone differently. Its not safe to return until you are 100% symptom free which best obviously is not. Who knows if he'll play next year but my money is on him at least trying to but one hit to the head would make it a short comeback

He's done. It's been over a year since his last concussion (which wasn't nasty at all), and he claims to be symptom free. He's got to already have obvious long term damage. Sad because he was one of the most explosive players in the league and took our offense to a whole different level. I hope he enjoys retirement, maybe he can be a coach eventually.

Shame that his career got derailed because of injuries. Hopefully he can put his college education to good use.

Everyone knew the issues with him.

I think it's best if he calls it a career, I'd hate for him to come back and suffer another concussion. Like you said, maybe he can go into coaching, like at his HS or maybe even Cal. I just hope for the best in whatever decision he makes.

There were major red flags with him in the draft. Not a surprising end to a career.

You reach a point where it can cause permanent problems...even coma and death. He claims he's symptom free but I'm guessing the doctors don't believe it as he's not passing concussion tests.

In a case like this, it's probably best for him in the long run that he retires.

To go into more detail, even if another concussion doesn't cause coma or death, it can have post concussion symptoms that last for years and basically keep you from getting work.

Here's an article with Al Toon describing his issues caused by numerous concussions:

Should just quit, while his brain still works.
