Recommendation: Best had been hoped to be cleared for contact Friday, but it would appear he's still not yet where the training staff wants him after battling a series of concussions. If he can get healthy before Detroit needs to finalize its 53-man roster, he'll be eligible for Week 1. If not, he'll be on the shelf until after Week 6. Mikel Leshoure (Achilles) and Kevin Smith will likely see extra reps as a result.
