Posted Oct 15, 2012

"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.
 
"Throughout this entire process we always have placed the highest priority on what is best for Jahvid from a health and safety standpoint," Mayhew continued. "While today's decision is disappointing from a football perspective, we fully and entirely respect and support this recommendation.
 
"Jahvid will continue to work with our medical and training staffs with the hope that he ultimately will be cleared to return to the playing field."
