Ryan Broyles lost for year with torn ACL

Ryan Broyles 4

The Detroit Lions have grown dangerously thin at wide receiver.

Coach Jim Schwartz told reporters Monday that rookie Ryan Broyles will miss the rest of the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. Broyles suffered the injury in the first quarter of Sundays loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

Broyles tore the ACL in his left knee at Oklahoma last season. Not the same joints, but still a major concern for a developing NFL pass-catcher. (NFL.com)

    What Does Ryan Broyles’ Injury Mean for Detroit Lions, Fantasy Owners?

    “His status as a sleeper has certainly taken a hit now, but with the current state of the Lions roster, Broyles could still be a solid flex play when he is able to return…Still, his history of knee problems has to at least worry potential fantasy owners. Luckily, it is not the same knee that sidelined him with the Oklahoma Sooners, and Broyles is building solid chemistry with QB Matthew Stafford,

    “The risk-reward factor here is definitely intriguing. If Broyles returns before Young he is still worth a possible flex play simply because Detroit has the top-ranked passing attack in the league, but if Young returns Broyles’ value drops considerably.”
