Detroit Lions WR Ryan Broyles (Achilles') is trying to take things one day at a time after two days of training camp following a torn Achilles' tendon in 2013, saying he feels 'pretty good right now.' Broyles missed time in 2011 and 2012 with torn anterior cruciate ligaments in both knees, and he understands how to prepare for a season while rehabbing a major injury. Broyles has a new speed coach and is working on becoming more explosive, while not putting too much stress on his knees.
Huddle Up: If Broyles can stay healthy he could be a real threat against defenses focused on stopping Calvin Johnson. Of course, if the Lions believed Broyles could stay healthy they wouldn't have signed Golden Tate in the offseason to be Megatron's wingman.

Detroit Lions WR Ryan Broyles (Achilles') said he was going to look to work with a speed coach in the weeks leading up to training camp. Broyles said his rehab went well this offseason and was able to fully participate in minicamp.
Huddle Up: Broyles has sort of been lost in the Motown shuffle after playing the equivalent of one full season and logging only 30 receptions in his two years as a pro. Golden Tate has now been brought in to start opposite Megatron, and Broyles is going to have to stay healthy and work his way back into the Lions' WR rotation.

Detroit Lions WR Ryan Broyles (Achilles' tendon) has worked on the placement of his feet, knees and hips, and is learning movements and proper form in order to eliminate future injuries. Broyles has already come back from two ACL tears and says the Achilles rehabilitation has been easier.
Huddle Up: That's one way to prevent injuries, relearning to run. Assuming Broyles can master that quickly and return to being a natural receiver, he could compete with Golden Tate for looks opposite Calvin Johnson.

Detroit Lions WR Ryan Broyles (Achilles' tendon) is looking forward to the competition at the slot position, where first-round pick TE Eric Ebron and sixth-round pick WR T.J. Jones are also slated to see time.
Huddle Up: Broyles has proven to be a dynamic contributor when healthy; if he's all the way back from his injury the Lions will find a role for him in their high-octane passing offense.

Detroit Lions WR Ryan Broyles (Achilles') is participating in the team's workout Wednesday, April 23. Broyles did not participate Tuesday, April 22.
Huddle Up: Broyles' injury cost him a shot at claiming the coveted Megatron wingman role in Detroit; now he'll have to battle Golden Tate for that honor, and Tate's contract suggests the playing field is tilted in his favor. On the bright side, at least Broyles is back on the field.
