Lions Vs. Ravens: Ryan Broyles To Make Debut Friday Night

Despite a recovery from an ACL surgery in November that kept Ryan Broyles out of the first Lions preseason game and has withheld him from several training camp practices, the second-round pick will play on Friday night, according to the team's official site.

The rookie receiver isn't the only one making his preseason debut, as second year wideout Titus Young and defensive end Cliff Avril will both return to the lineup as well.

The Lions also announced that seven players will not be participating due to injury: Mikel Leshoure (hamstring), Kyle Vanden Bosch (knee), defensive tackle Sammie Hill (back), safety Louis Delmas (knee), offensive tackle Jonathan Scott (knee), cornerback Chris Greenwood (PUP) and running back Jahvid Best (PUP).

Starting on defense in place of the injured Vanden Bosch will be defensive end Lawrence Jackson.
