I talked to Jahvid Best a couple of days ago for a story that will be running in the next couple of days. Not surprisingly, he is sitting out the track season as he continues to rehab from his hip injury. Best seemed cautiously optimistic about his progress. He is currently rehabbing daily with the sports medicine staff, doing leg work to increase his strength and range of motion.
It doesn’t sound like he will participate in spring practice. Best is really focusing on just being completely healthy by the start of training camp in August. He sounded confident he will be ready to go by then. (“I should be good,” he said.)
Best admitted the injury scared him a bit because he didn’t think it would be serious but turned into “a big deal.” But he said now ”it’s under control.”
