Ryan Broyles injury: Lions WR to have MRI on Monday

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

The Lions receiver was sidelined on Sunday with a knee injury.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles is scheduled to have an MRI on his right knee on Monday to determine the severity of an injury that he suffered in the first quarter of Monday's loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Broyles left the game in the first quarter and returned to the sideline later in street clothes.

The Detroit Lions are already shorthanded at wide receiver with Nate Burleson out for the season and Titus Young in a potentially indefinite doghouse. Detroit played most of the game out of a base set featuring receivers Calvin Johnson and Mike Thomas and tight ends Brandon Pettigrew and Tony Scheffler. Return specialist Stefan Logan also lined up at receiver at times during the game.

The offense, though, wasn't the problem for Detroit, who scored 33 points but squandered the game on a late drive by Indy's Andrew Luck. Broyles, who tore his ACL in his senior season at Oklahoma, has 22 catches for 310 yards and two touchdowns so far this season.
