Ryan Broyles begins running in pool as part of injury rehab

USA TODAY Sports

Detroit Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles started running in a pool on Monday as he continues to rehab a torn ACL.

With the Detroit Lions releasing wide receiver Titus Young on Monday, they are officially in need of help at wide receiver. It was really a given after how Young behaved last season, and now the Lions are once again going to have find somebody who can help take the attention of defenses away from Calvin Johnson.

Last year, the Lions spent a second-round pick on Ryan Broyles to help solidify their group of receivers. Once he was fully up to speed from his ACL recovery, Broyles showed a great deal of promise, but then he tore his other ACL. He has been busy rehabbing the injury this offseason, and he started running in a pool on Monday.

It remains to be seen when Broyles will be ready to go in 2013. What we do know is that it is even more important for him to be ready for the start of the season with Young now gone. The Lions will have to count on Broyles and Nate Burleson, who is also coming off of a season-ending leg injury. I'm sure the Lions will look for additional help via the draft and free agency, but for now, the Lions' top three receivers are Johnson, Burleson and Broyles.
