Lions | Preaching patience with Ryan Broyles
Thu, 17 Oct 2013 12:43:55 -0700

The Detroit Lions are being patient with WR Ryan Broyles because they weren't expecting him to play before October while he came back from his second anterior cruciate ligament tear in as many years. He sat out the first two games and played just 17 snaps in week 3, but the team had to accelerate his progress when WR Nate Burleson went down with a broken forearm. Broyles' production has been minimal, though, even though he's played almost 40 snaps per game without Burleson in the lineup. Many times, the coverage has dictated that Detroit go away from the slot receiver, Broyles' position.

There is a glimmer of hope for Broyles still because this is around the same time last year that he started becoming consistently involved in the offense. However, Kris Durham has stepped up and Calvin Johnson (knee) seems to be returning to full health. There are many mouths to feed in Detroit. Don't forget about Broyles, but he hasn't given you any reason to hang onto him in shallow leagues.
