Lions RB Jahvid Best hasn’t yet been cleared to play after missing most of last season following his second concussion of the 2011 campaign, but GM Martin Mayhew told reporters Tuesday that he expects that to happen.

“It’s up to the medical professionals to decide when he’s going to be available,” Mayhew said, according to the Detroit Free Press. “Eventually he will get cleared. I’m very positive. I feel very comfortable saying that. It’s just a question of the timing of it is up to those guys.”

Mayhew said he was a “little bit surprised, little bit disappointed” that Best wasn’t yet cleared.

Best, 22, rushed for 390 yards and a pair of TDs on 84 carries and caught 27-287-1 in six games in 2011.
