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.
