Ryan Broyles’ Detroit Lions career has been characterized by injuries. He was rehabbing on knee injury when the team drafted him only to injure the other knee during his rookie season. After battling back from that, he was knocked out for the year with an Achilles injury last year. If there is one player the Lions are most likely to handle with care, it is Broyles as he enters what might be a make-or-break season.
But while Broyles could be counted among those sitting out due to injury on the first day of minicamp, Broyles got some action on the practice field on day two.
Pretty much the same cast of characters not taking part in #Lions practice. One note is Ryan Broyles is practicing.

Stephen Tulloch was impressed with the pace of practice yesterday but there is a big difference between Broyles running some drills today and being ready for an NFL season. Still, being able to participate is good news considering the start of the regular season is more than four months away.
