Week 16 NFL rewind:

Lions WR Broyles out for season

The SportsXchange

Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz announced Monday that rookie wide receiver Ryan Broyles will miss the rest of the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

Broyles was injured during Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

For the season, Broyles caught 22 passes for 310 yards with two touchdowns.

Broyles sustained a torn left ACL last year at Oklahoma last season.

Schwartz also said that wide receiver Titus Young was sent home for the second time in the last week for behavior detrimental to the team. This time, Young's ban is indefinite.

Mike Thomas will likely start opposite Calvin Johnson as the team's No. 2 receiver going forward. Brian Robiskie could also see a bigger role.
