Ryan Broyles provides update on ACL rehab

Gregory Shamus

How is Detroit Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles' rehab coming along? He recently provided an update on how things are going.

Just like last year, Detroit Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles is spending the offseason recovering from a torn ACL. It's his other knee this time, though, and there isn't quite as much uncertainty surrounding the injury. This is because he didn't just get drafted; he's been in the league for a year now, and he already has experienced the process of rehabbing from this kind of injury once before.

Broyles provided an update on where things stand in his recovery to the Lions' official site on Tuesday. He didn't get into specifics in terms of a timetable for being 100 percent healthy, but he did note that he's on the right track.

"You know how to tolerate pain," Broyles said. "You know when you should push and when you should rest. They’ve done a good job (in the training room) helping me out with that as well.

"There are milestones and you set out a timeline of where you want to be and I feel like I’m in the right direction right now."

Broyles also said that he was 100 percent healthy from his first torn ACL, which happened in early November 2011, by Week 5 of the 2012 season. His most recent ACL tear happened in early December of the 2012 season, so it's unclear when exactly he will be 100 percent healthy this year. Given that he's been through this once before and is going through the rehab process with the Lions, you would expect the recovery to be a bit quicker this time around, but it's tough to predict with ACL injuries.
