Ryan Broyles Expects to be Ready for Week 1

Former Oklahoma and current Detroit Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles is giving Adrian Peterson a run for his money in advancing the anterior cruciate ligament recovery timetable.

Just more than a year removed from tearing his left ACL at Oklahoma, Broyles underwent right ACL surgery in December. Not long after the latter injury, Lions general manager Martin Mayhew predicted Broyles would be limited in training camp and unreliable until the middle of the 2013 season.

Broyles already has shattered Mayhew's expectations, returning to full participation in last week's mandatory minicamp.

The Lions might play it cautiously and send Broyles to the physically unable to perform list when training camp opens, but the wide receiver doesn't expect that to happen. In fact, Broyles believes he will be back to full speed for the start of the regular season.
