Ryan Broyles has never been able to make the contributions the Detroit Lions envisioned when they drafted the wide receiver thanks to two season-ending injuries.
Here are three questions about Broyles prior to the start of training camp:
1. Is he back to his old self? Broyles tore his Achille’s tendon last November and had it surgically repaired. He was under no physical restrictions at minicamp. He looked fine, but said he’s still working on his speed.
2. Will he fit in the new offense? He should slide right in as a slot receiver if he’s up to speed.
3. Can he stay healthy? This guy has had no luck at all. He was coming off ACL surgery from college, then in first season tore his other ACL, then the Achille’s. Amazingly he still keeps a smile on his face. Teammates say he’s always in the workout room and he looks like he’s in great shape. He deserves a break.
