Though he's just nine months removed from surgery, the Lions' second-round draft pick felt he was close to being ready to join his new teammates on the practice field. That will happen Sunday, as DetroitLions.com reports that Broyles has been removed from the non-football injury list and is cleared to practice.
The 5-foot-10, 192-pound Broyles is expected to be an immediate contributor in the Lions' offense, working the slot as the No. 3 receiver behind Calvin Johnson and Nate Burleson. (NFL.com)
