Ryan Broyles injury: Lions WR has surgery

After tearing his ACL against the Colts on Sunday, the Lions' wideout had surgery to repair his knee

Coming off a career day that saw him catch six catch passes for 124 yards against Houston on Thanksgiving, Lions rookie wide receiver Ryan Broyles tore his ACL against Indianapolis on Sunday. And according to pictures posted by his wife, the 24-year-old showed up for his surgery.

Broyles was placed on injured reserve Tuesday after the injury forced him to leave in the first quarter at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday. The Colts would go on to win the game on a last-second touchdown throw from Andrew Luck to Donny Avery. Broyles had one catch for three yards before the injury.

A second-round pick out of Oklahoma, Broyles was taken by the Lions with the 54th overall pick. The former Sooner was climbing the depth chart when second-year wideout Titus Young went on injured reserve. His game against the Texans was the typical "breakout game" seen from young wide receivers. But with Young seemingly on his way out of Detroit, a healthy Ryan Broyles in 2013 could garner some serious looks from the Lions.
