Lions receiver Ryan Broyles has ruptured Achilles tendon
Once again, Ryan Broyles has suffered a season-ending injury. This time, it's a ruptured Achilles tendon.
Detroit coach Jim Schwartz confirmed Monday that the 2012 second-round pick who missed the second half of last season with an ACL tear is done for this year after rupturing his Achilles tendon in Sunday's win vs. the Cowboys. Broyles will undergo surgery Tuesday.
On the season, Broyles -- who also tore his ACL during his senior season of college -- had caught eight passes for 85 yards in six games.
"He's working hard," Schwartz said earlier this month. "He's an important part of where we are offensively and he's going to make some plays for us. I think we just have to be patient there."
Meanwhile, Nate Burleson, who's been out with a broken arm, won't be rushed back to action because of Broyles' injury, Schwartz said.
