WR Ryan Broyles and OT Jonathan Scott cleared to practice

Posted by ttwentyman on July 29, 2012 – 8:59 am

Rookie wide receiver Ryan Broyles is no longer a bystander at Lions training camp practice.

The team removed Broyles from the non-football injury list on Sunday, paving the way for him to join his teammates at practice nine months after he had ACL surgery on his left knee.

“I’m nine months out so I’m on the verge of getting cleared any day now,” Broyles told Detroitlions.com on Saturday.

Turns out he was right.

Broyles was drafted in the second round out of Oklahoma and is expected to be an immediate contributor in the slot for the Lions.

The team also removed offensive tackle Jonathan Scott from NFI. Scott was signed as a free agent on Wednesday but failed his conditioning test Friday morning.

    How do you fail a conditioning test on Friday and by Sunday you’re good-to-go? If its that easy to get in shape, I’m missing something!

    This is great news for this team with titus,megatron.nate,broyles I know I am missing somebody but who you going to throw to the opposing defense will have to use the full defense wont be able to put 8 in the box or they will get burned and this will in itself improve our running game! GO LIONS!

    @ Rockbo1955 — ummm why would a team put 8 in the box vs the Lions? They aren’t feared running the ball where teams need an 8th in the box?! Did you watch any games the last 10 years or just don’t really know football?

    I am really hoping to see good things from Ryan Broyles. If he gets back to his college form, the Lions got a STEAL.
    Jonathan Scott could be a crucial signing, with his ability to play both sides. Still young (29) and now has insight as to how a championship team is run.

    The Lions should replace Burleson with Plaxico, Sims-Walker, or even Mike Williams from Seattle! Then letting Broyles develop behind the three starters would be shweeet scenario.

    I hope they don’t rush anything with broyles knee. It is his only major injury and dont want to hear about any set-backs or bs. If he sets out any game time, lets just say it will be worth the wait when we can see him 100%. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . da nuh. .
