Former Oklahoma receiver Ryan Broyles practiced for the first time since rupturing his Achilles tendon while fielding a punt Oct. 27 against Dallas.

Broyles was cleared to rejoin the team for voluntary conditioning the past two weeks, but did not have a helmet for Day 1 of minicamp. He was back in action Wednesday, including shagging a few passes during the brief media availability.

That is a promising sign in his bid to come back from a third consecutive season-ending injury. He has missed 16 games in his two years as a pro, and caught only 30 passes for 395 yards and two touchdowns.

The Lions have said they aren't sure yet whether Broyles will return to the form that made him the NCAA's all-time leading pass-catcher at Oklahoma and the Lions' second-round pick in 2012. (MLive.com)
