Lions WR Broyles on way to full recovery from Achilles injury:
Detroit Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles is well on his way to a full recovery from a ruptured Achilles tendon, his third consecutive season-ending leg injury, MLive.com reports. He participated in the first round of OTAs at receiver and kick returner.
"I’m gettin’ right, man. I really am," Broyles told the website. "Rehab is not fun. It’s not anything I wanted to have happen. But I just got to be smart, at the end of the day.
"I’m always a positive person. Everything happens for a reason, and this will be a good testimony for me years on. Just got to continue to work, and whatever comes my way, I’ll continue to attack it.
"But it sure is good to get back out here and play football again." (Photo: Associated Press)
