Detroit Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles is almost fully recovered after rupturing his Achilles tendon in 2014, according to MLive.com.
General manager Martin Mayhew said earlier this offseason that Broyles attacks rehab harder than just about any player he has ever seen, and that regimen has Broyles closing in on a full recovery.
He participated in the Lions’ first round of OTAs this week, both at receiver and kick returner. And that was enough to put a smile on his face.
“I’m gettin’ right, man. I really am,” Broyles told MLive after Wednesday’s practice. “(Rehab) is not fun. It’s not anything I wanted to have happen. But I just got to be smart, at the end of the day.
“I’m always a positive person. Everything happens for a reason, and this will be a good testimony for me years on. Just got to continue to work, and whatever comes my way, I’ll continue to attack it.
“But it sure is good to get back out here and play football again.”
