Former Oklahoma receiver Ryan Broyles certainly hasn't been hesitant to get back on the field following an ACL injury suffered last December.

In fact, it's easy to forget he suffered that injury at all. His practice time has far exceeded his rest time throughout training camp and he played in his first live game this past week at Cleveland.

"Mentally, I'm 100-percent," he said following Sunday's practice, "so I want to go out there and make plays when I can."

The problem is that his body doesn't always cooperate.

The way he put it: "Your body shows up some days and some days it doesn't. This has been one of the most challenging things of my life, coming off two ACLs. I'm out here trying to compete at a high level.

"Mentally, like I said, I'm 100-percent. My body thinks differently from day-to-day."

Broyles didn't catch a pass Thursday in a Lions' offensive performance that left much to be desired, but was on the field for a significant number of plays.

"It's a big step getting back out there on that field - I'm going full go," he said. (More at Detroit Lions Official Website)
