DETROIT (97.1 The Ticket) Detroit Lions Head Coach Jim Schwartz announced Monday that rookie WR Ryan Broyles tore the ACL in his right knee — on the seventh play of the game against the Colts — which will keep him out for the remainder of the season.

Last year at Oklahoma, Broyles tore the ACL in his left knee. On the season, Broyles, a second round pick this year, had 22 receptions for 310 yards and two touchdowns.

During the announcement, Schwartz did mention that Brandon Pettigrew, among others, have been able to recover from torn ACLs on both knees.

When asked if Titus Young will be back with the team because of Broyles injury, Schwartz said he is not part of the plan.

“I certainly believe in second chances … but you need to make the most of the opportunities you have … In this case that didn’t happen,” Schwartz said about Young.

When asked if Young is done with the team for the season, Schwartz said,  “I can’t predict what the future will hold.”
