The Detroit Lions announced on Monday that they have placed WR Ryan Broyles on season-ending injured reserve after he suffered a ruptured Achilles during Week 8’s game.
This is the second season-ending injury Broyles has suffered in as many years in the NFL. Last season, Broyles tore his right ACL after he suffered an ACL tear in his left knee during his senior year of college.
At this point in time, there is some question as to whether or not he will be able to comeback from three major injures in the past three seasons.
The Lions have been hoping that Broyles would be able to step in and solidify their No. 2 wide receiver position opposite of Calvin Johnson. Broyles has flashed some ability, but there is no question that injuries have limited him.
Hopefully, he will be back at full strength at the start of the 2014 season.
