                     === Lions WR Broyles has torn ACL ===
 
 Allen  Park,  MI (Sports  Network) -  Detroit Lions  rookie wide receiver Ryan
 Broyles  tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during Sunday's
 35-33 loss to the Colts, head coach Jim Schwartz revealed on Monday.
 
 Broyles  tore the  ACL in his left  knee during his senior season at Oklahoma,
 but  this  time injured  the  opposite  knee  and will  undergo  season-ending
 reconstructive  surgery  to correct the  issue. He left Sunday's contest after
 make a short catch on the Lions' second offensive series of the game.
 
 The  rookie  wideout finished the  year with 22 catches  for 310 yards and two
 touchdowns,  but  posted his  most productive game  in a 34-31  OT loss to the
 Texans on Thanksgiving.
 
 He  hauled  in six  passes for 126  yards, seeing an  increase in playing time
 after second-year wide receiver Titus Young was held out of the contest due to
 behavioral reasons.
 
 Young missed his second consecutive game after sitting out of Sunday's loss to
 the  Colts. Schwartz announced he is still not with the team and that he "will
 not be in the mix," but wouldn't say if Young's season is over.
 
 "I can't predict what the future will hold," said Schwartz.
 
 The Lions will play at Green Bay next Sunday night.
