Lions Fear Season Ending Surgery For Broyles

Lions_Ryan_Broyles_2013Ryan Broyles likely is facing season-ending surgery for the third straight year, and the Lions again are in the market for help at wide receiver.

Broyles suffered what coach Jim Schwartz said appears to be a ruptured right Achilles tendon as he called for a fair catch on a punt return early in the third quarter.

The punt sailed 58 yards into the end zone for a touchback, but Broyles hobbled immediately to the sideline and walked gingerly to the locker room with trainers in tow.
