Ryan Broyles Injury: ACL Surgery Likely In 2-3 Weeks

Oklahoma wide receiver Ryan Broyles suffered a torn ACL on Saturday, ending his college career. Broyles was carted off the field after landing awkwardly and was see tearing up on the sideline before he was taken to the locker room. Following the game, we learned of the extent of his injuries, which will require surgery.

According to Travis Haney, Broyles will undergo surgery within the next month.

Just a devastating blow for Oklahoma and Broyles. For the Sooners, Broyles' injury deprives the offense of its top target going forward. Oklahoma is still in the Big 12 title hunt, and a date with Oklahoma State looms large at the end of the season.

More importantly, this ends Broyles' record-breaking career at Oklahoma and significantly damages his professional prospects. With recovery typically in the range of a year, Broyles faces a long road ahead as he tries to get back to where he was before the injury.

Ryan Broyles Injury Update: Torn ACL Likely Ends Oklahoma Great's Career

Awful news out of Norman: Oklahoma Sooners wide receiver Ryan Broyles, the NCAA's all-time receptions leader, has suffered a torn ACL. This will likely end his season, and, since he's a senior, his college career.

John E. Hoover@johnehoover Confirmed: Ryan Broyles suffered a torn ACL. #Sooners

Broyles went down in the third quarter against Texas A&M with an obvious knee injury. He made it off the field without apparent agony, sitting on the trainer's table while surrounded by at least a half-dozen team medics. At one point a doctor delivered him some news in his ear -- his head dropped. When it came back up, he was crying. Broyles was helped into the locker room, and the injury update made its way out after the game.

Broyles will be remembered as one of the greatest players in Oklahoma history. He had a chance to be a highly drafted NFL player last year, but chose to come back for a title run.

Ryan Broyles Injury: Oklahoma Star Hurts Knee Against Texas A&M

Oklahoma Sooners all-world wide receiver Ryan Broyles was sidelined in the third quarter against the Texas A&M Aggies with some sort of knee injury. Broyles brought down a pass near the sideline and landed awkwardly, crumpling to the ground. He didn't appear to be in extreme pain, but it was evident something was very wrong.

He was immediately helped to the sideline training table, and was observed by a horde of medical personnel. Minutes later, he was in tears as he was being led into the locker room.

There's no diagnosis yet, of course, but this does not sound good at all:

Geoff Ketchum@gkketch Damn. Doctor leaned into Ryan Broyles to tell him something and Broyles' head dropped as soon as he heard from him. Damn.    

Broyles is the NCAA's all-time receptions leader, and could've gone pro last year but elected to try and help contribute to a championship team. He would've likely been a high pick.
