Ryan Broyles had a good minicamp, making impressive catches and flashing his speed and agility as he showed good progress in his return from a torn Achilles tendon last season.
“I haven’t felt this healthy to do anything in the off-season,” he said. “I (couldn’t do) a lot of pounding. But this off-season I feel like I’m going to be able to get a full off-season.”
Anterior cruciate ligament tears in each of his knees in 2011 and ’12 robbed Broyles of having a completely healthy off-season in the NFL before this year. His rehabilitation was initially slower for his Achilles — six weeks in a cast followed by two weeks on crutches — versus the ACL, when he was on his feet the first day.
But Broyles said this year’s rehab went very well and he wasn’t limited at all during minicamp. He was even on the prowl for a speed coach he could work with before training camp in order to give him an edge.
“It’s more just conditioning for the body, a lot of lightweight stuff for me to stay mobile, to stay healthy,” he said. “Foot placement and things like that. But on top of that, I want to work on my foot placement as well.” (Detroit Free Press)
