If it weren’t for bad luck, Ryan Broyles might have none at all.
The second-year wide receiver, who spent most of his second year recovering from an ACL injury and most of his current year recovering from another ACL injury, might end up spending some his third year recovering from a ruptured Achilles.
Lions fear Ryan Broyles injury could be season-ending http://t.co/jcfP90P7le

It sounds like the Lions are pretty sure Broyles’ injury is related to his Achilles, but they don’t yet know the severity. They’ll run more tests on Monday, but if this is anything like the Achilles injury Mikel Leshoure suffered in 2011, the Lions have to be concerned. That injury kept Leshoure out of action for a full year, and he hasn’t looked the same sense.
Of course, a “ruptured” Achilles isn’t necessarily a “torn” Achilles. This could be an injury of a few weeks or several months, and we won’t know more until Monday.
But if nothing else, it just became a lot more important for the Lions to (hopefully) get Nate Burleson back after the bye week.
