Detroit Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles tore his right ACL early in the Lions 35-33 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Broyles had his best game of the season the previous week against the Houston Texans, with 126 yards receiving. Broyles tore his left ACL last season with the Oklahoma Sooners.
Head coach Jim Schwartz said wide receiver Titus Young will not be in the mix to replace Broyles and the team will make a roster move at wide receiver this week.
Fantasy Impact: Broyles had not been a consistent fantasy producer this season, but now he is done for the season. Recent Lions' addition Mike Thomas should see an uptick in his targets with Broyles now done for the season.
The Lions will likely add another wide receiver to their roster to help take pressure off Calvin Johnson.
