Ryan Broyles was fully dressed and participating in pre-game wide receiver drills Friday prior to the Detroit Lions' preseason matchup against the Baltimore Ravens, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. Broyles returned to practice Tuesday, coming back from a torn ACL during his senior season at Oklahoma.
Analysis: The Lions invested a second round pick in the prolific wideout, so you can bet the team will be taking its time with Broyles. While it appears he will be playing Friday, don't expect to see him in extensive action. If Broyles rises to fantasy relevance this season, it likely won't be until later in the season. Not only will be there be considerable amount of rust, but the Lions already have plenty of targets to throw too among Calvin Johnson, Titus Young, Nate Burleson and Brandon Pettigrew.
