Ryan Broyles was on his way to proving the draft day naysayers wrong. He was finally healthy after recovering from a left ACL tear and was getting more playing time with the season ending injury to Nate Burleson and the continued petulance of Titus Young.

That was until yesterday when Broyles left the game early in the contest with a knee injury. More news was released today and it isn’t good.

Ryan Broyles will miss the rest of the season with a tear of his right ACL.

Yes, an ACL tear to each knee in consecutive seasons.

To his credit, Broyles isn’t letting this terrible news get him down.
