Caldwell: Door is open for WR Ryan Broyles to talk about his role


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Lions head coach Jim Caldwell told the media on Monday that the door is open for wide receiver Ryan Broyles to come talk about his role on offense, per MLive.com. Even with Calvin Johnson sidelined, Broyles was on the field for only two offensive snaps in a Week 6 victory over Minnesota. He voiced his frustrations on Twitter after the game.

"I think if you look, overall, at his tweets through the years he's a guy that believes in motivation," Caldwell said. "He'll send things out I think you can take it a number of different ways. It just so happens, the timing of that particular tweet, you could take it one way or another."

Ryan Broyles survives cuts after leading team in receiving


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles led the team in receiving yards this preseason, finishing with 11 catches for 144 yards.

Broyles managed two plays of at least 20 yards, and nine of his 11 receptions resulted in first downs. While Broyles was able to make the final 53-man roster, he's listed as a third-string receiver on the unofficial depth chart posted on the team's website. With draft pick Eric Ebron and free-agent signee Golden Tate figuring into the team's offensive plans, Broyles will likely have trouble finding consistent targets unless a rash of injuries occur.


Lions web site: Ryan Broyles on roster bubble


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/2014) Though a story previewing receivers on the Lions official team website says that the Lions will give Ryan Broyles every opportunity to make the team this summer, they still list him as being on the roster bubble. That's because Broyles has battled injuries throughout his short NFL career after being taken in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft. He's played 16 games over two seasons and has 30 catches for 395 yards and two scores. 

"Broyles still has to prove the explosiveness is back in his legs," writer Tim Twentyman explains. "If he does that, he should have a spot."


Ryan Broyles making good progress


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Lions receiver Ryan Broyles made "impressive catches" and "flashed his speed and agility" during minicamp as he continues to progress in his return from a torn Achilles, reports the Detroit Free Press. Broyles told the paper he feels like he's finally getting the benefit of a full offseason.

He was planning to work with a speed coach before training camp.

"It’s more just conditioning for the body, a lot of lightweight stuff for me to stay mobile, to stay healthy," he said. "Foot placement and things like that."


Lions looking for No. 3 receiver


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/26/2014) The Lions have Ryan Broyles, Jeremy Ross and Kris Durham competing for the No. 3 job this season behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, reports the Detroit Free Press.

Broyles is returning from a torn Achilles tendon, his third straight season-ending leg injury, but he’s ahead of schedule in his rehab and took part in most spring workouts. He’s the same surehanded receiver the Lions drafted in the second round two years ago, though not as explosive. 

Ross is another slot receiver. He’s all but guaranteed a spot on the game-day roster because of his return ability, and is coming off of an impressive spring during which he saw extended action because of injuries.

Durham is the biggest and most accomplished option of this trio. He’s a red-zone threat at 6-feet-5, is coming off a career-high 38-catch season and has a good rapport with Matthew Stafford, his college roommate. 


Report: Ryan Broyles on his way to full recovery


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2014) Lions receiver Ryan Broyles is well on his way to a full recovery from a ruptured Achilles tendon, his third consecutive season-ending leg injury, reports MLive.com. He participated in the first round of OTAs at receiver and kick returner.

"I'm gettin' right, man. I really am," Broyles told the website. "(Rehab) is not fun. It's not anything I wanted to have happen. But I just got to be smart, at the end of the day.

"I'm always a positive person. Everything happens for a reason, and this will be a good testimony for me years on. Just got to continue to work, and whatever comes my way, I'll continue to attack it.

"But it sure is good to get back out here and play football again."


Ryan Broyles not a full participant


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/22/2014) Lions third-year receiver Ryan Broyles didn't participate in full Wednesday during the team's minicamp practice. MLive.com reports Broyles got work in returning kickoffs and looked comfortable planting and changing directions off of his legs. He's working his way back from an Achilles injury, his third major season-ending injury. 

Ryan Broyles could be squeezed out of slot


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) Lions receiver Ryan Broyles runs about two-thirds of his routes from the slot. With the team's offseason additions, he may get squeezed out of the slot, reports MLive.com.

Detroit drafted tight end Eric Ebron and plans to use him in the slot. Then the Lions drafted a true slot receiver in Notre Dame's TJ Jones. And free-agent acquisition Golden Tate will play inside and outside in coordinator Joe Lombardi's scheme. 

None of that bodes well for Broyles, who's coming back from a ruptured Achilles tendon. The Lions' moves indicate the team is "making provisions should Broyles not make a full recovery from his third consecutive season-ending injury," the report said.


Lions GM believes in Ryan Broyles


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2014) Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said his belief in oft-injured receiver Ryan Broyles hasn't wavered.

“I believe in Ryan, and he’s one of the hardest-working guys I’ve ever seen in terms of rehab, practice. He’s just outstanding,’’ Mayhew told the Oakland Press. "So, I believe in him. I’m not going to build a whole offense around him, obviously, but I believe in that man."

Broyles had surgery in late October to repair a torn Achilles, but participated in the team's voluntary minicamp last month.


Ryan Broyles practices for first time since October


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) Lions receiver Ryan Broyles practiced Wednesday for the first time since he ruptured his Achilles tendon fielding a punt Oct. 27 against Dallas, reports MLive.com. It was the second day of the team's voluntary minicamp.

Broyles caught a few passes during the brief period open to the media.


Ryan Broyles participating in offseason program


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) Lions receiver Ryan Broyles, who ruptured his Achilles tendon fielding a punt in late October, is participating in voluntary conditioning this week after gaining medical clearance, reports MLive.com. Broyles missed 16 games in his first two NFL seasons.

The next test is whether Broyles can join the Lions for on-field instruction starting April 22, the report said.


Caldwell address Ryan Broyles, but not really


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/27/2014) Lions receiver Ryan Broyles is working his way back from a torn Achilles that limited him to just eight catches last season. When asked about him at the NFL Owners Meeting, new Lions coach Jim Caldwell instead spoke openly about fresh starts. 

"Everybody starts with a clean slate," Caldwell said. "That's the beauty of it. We have an opportunity to look at things from a new vantage point and if a guy wants the opportunity to remake himself, he has that opportunity."

Through parts of two seasons Broyles has tallied 30 catches for 395 yards and a pair of touchdowns. 


Lions GM unsure of Ryan Broyles' future


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/5/2014) While the Lions are hoping for a full recovery by receiver Ryan Broyles, general manager Martin Mayhew said it's too soon to plan on him being available for the 2014 season following a torn Achilles. 

"[H]e's still rehabbing," Mayhew said via MLive.com, adding that he's progressing well. "Hopefully we'll get an opportunity to see him when he gets back and see what he looks like. ... I know Ryan's a hard worker. In previous rehabs he's been outstanding. I think he's going to be outstanding in this rehab too."

Through parts of two seasons Broyles has tallied 30 catches for 395 yards and a pair of touchdowns. 


Lions need major upgrade at receiver


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2014) Lions wideouts not named Calvin Johnson were a big disappointment in 2013, underlining the team's need to upgrade at the position, according to MLive.com.

Nate Burleson made a splash after returning from his broken forearm, then faded badly, catching 13 passes over the final five games. Ryan Broyles tore his Achilles tendon and finished the season with eight catches. Kris Durham played more snaps than any Detroit receiver and "underwhelmed," catching 38 passes for 490 yards and two touchdowns while dropping 10 throws.

Burleson, set to earn $5.5 million in 2014, likely will be asked to take a big pay cut.


Ryan Broyles suffers another season-ending injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2013) Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles will finish the 2013 season how he finished the 2012 season -- on injured reserve. Lions coach Jim Schwartz announced Monday Broyles suffered a ruptured Achilles Sunday against the Cowboys and will miss the rest of the season.

Broyles, who is scheduled for surgery Tuesday, played 10 games last season before suffering a torn ACL, which is the second time he suffered the injury in his career. Broyles did not dress the first two games of the 2013 season as Detroit wanted to take a cautious approach with his recovery.


Ryan Broyles may have ruptured Achilles


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles may have suffered a long-term injury Sunday during the Week 8 win over the Cowboys, the Detroit Free Press reports. Coach Jim Schwartz said the initial diagnosis for Broyles is a ruptured Achilles. 

Broyles left the game in the third quarter just after halftime. He finished with one reception for 8 yards before leaving. 

The Lions have a bye Week 9 and return Week 10 at Chicago, though it appears that Broyles may not be available. 


Two Lions receivers each contribute two catches Week 7


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) Lions wide receivers Kevin Ogletree and Ryan Broyles each contributed two catches during a 27-24 loss Week 7 vs. Cincinnati. Ogletree totaled 50 yards, while Broyles had 16 yards.

Ogletree had the second-longest catch of the game for Detroit -- a 43-yard reception on a 3rd-and-20 play in the second half. Broyles was targeted on a 16-yard touchdown pass in the first half, but he was overthrown by quarterback Matthew Stafford.

The Lions are back in action Week 8 vs. Dallas.
