If any young NFL player knows a thing or two about rehabilitating a devastating injury (or three), it’s Detroit Lions’ wide receiver Ryan Broyles. The former second round pick has suffered three consecutive season ending injuries, so he's only played in 16 games since entering the league in 2012. Despite his misfortune thus far, Broyles continues look forward and will try to impress the new coaching regime in Detroit this preseason, according to Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com

Broyles is working his way back to full strength and looks to make 2014 his first completely healthy campaign dating back to 2010, after suffering two torn anterior cruciate ligaments and a torn Achilles in a three-year span. First, it was his left ACL during his senior year in 2011 at Oklahoma, then he tore his right ACL as a rookie with the Lions in 2012, and most recently tore his right Achilles tendon last October. 

Now, the 25-year-old will finally have another chance to play alongside the elite Calvin Johnson as well as Detroit's newly acquired pass-catcher from Seattle, Golden Tate. Due to his injury history, Broyles clearly has a considerable challenge ahead of him, but according to his Twitter, he’s ready to get back to work:
