Detroit Lions' rookie WR Ryan Broyles is excited for the Lions final preseason game on Aug. 30 against the Buffalo Bills. Broyles, a second-round pick out of Oklahoma, is coming off a torn ACL he suffered in a game against Texas A&M on Nov. 5, 2011. The rookie is looking forward to the increased playing time and a chance to play in the first half:
"It gives us our chance to come out there with the first-half swag; we’ve been waiting off until the second half, so it’s going to be good to get out there and go through warm-ups and have that intensity gathered up and actually get to start the game with that."
Broyles has four receptions for 42 yards through the first three games of the preseason. The Lions have been increasing his reps in practice as he recovers from his reconstructive knee surgery.
