Tedford: No decision on Best return

It remains decidedly questionable whether California running back Jahvid Best will play again this season.

Coach Jeff Tedford said Tuesday it will be up to Best to decide whether he feels ready to play again. Best was knocked out when he landed on his head after a short touchdown run in the Bears loss to Oregon State on Oct. 7. The Bears are off this week and conclude their season on Dec. 5 at Washington.

"We really haven't talked about it and probably won't talk about it unless Jahvid is up to it and wants to talk about it," coach Jeff Tedford said.

Tedford said that Best's concussion is no longer the issue but that Best's back continues to bother him.

Best is a junior and he likely will strongly consider entering the NFL draft this spring, therefore it's possible that his Cal career is over.
