Lions RB Jahvid Best Not Limited During Workouts

Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best was not limited during the first week of the team's off-season workout program, head coach Jim Schwartz said according to Carlos Monarrez of the Detroit News.

"He's doing the same things everybody else is doing," Schwartz said of Best.

Best finished 2011 on injured reserve following a second concussion of the league year. The 2010 first round pick out of Cal has been working out on his own since December, so it's not surprising that he was able to participate in "Phase One" of the program, which limits workouts to strength and conditioning and rehabilitation for the first two weeks, with quarterbacks and receivers able to work against air on the practice field.

Best has yet to be cleared to resume his playing career and could limited when "Phase Two" begins in a few weeks. That three-week period consists of limited on-field work with coaches, including positional and offense/defense only drills.
