Durham caught a short 4-yard touchdown pass from Matt Stafford in the first quarter. Earlier on the same drive, he hauled in a 2-yard reception. He finished the game with two catches for 6 yards and a touchdown.
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.
Ross came on late in the year for the Lions and had five catches for 59 yards with a touchdown. Durham has been a bigger staple in the offense for two seasons; he had 38 catches for 490 yards and two touchdowns.
