Broyles is likely down to final chance with Lions come the 2015 season, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Though he was healthy for the first time in his career, Broyles appeared in just five games with only two catches for 25 yards. Lions GM Martin Mayhew made the point that Broyles will be a year removed from his ruptered Achilles tendon injury entering training camp so he may be a bit faster- which he will probably need to make the Lions roster for the 2015 season.

Broyles finished the regular seasons with two catches for 25 yards on five targets.

Broyles finished the season fifth on the depth chart, and he wasn't active for any games in November or December. He did make it through the season without a significant injury, after suffering major lower-body injuries in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Broyles has one year remaining on his rookie contract, but it's hard to imagine him making an impact in Detroit, as the team has no shortage of talented pass-catchers. Assuming he's makes it to training camp with the Lions, Broyles may need to stave off competition for a roster spot.

Broyles has been activated for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Broyles has been inactive for the Lions' first three games of this season, but will make his first appearance Sunday in light of tight end Joseph Fauria (ankle) being ruled out, thus resulting in Detroit requiring another pass-catcher on their roster.

Broyles is among the Lions' inactives for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Broyles was also inactive for Detroit's season opener on Monday. With fellow wideout Kevin Ogletree another inactive, the Lions figure to use Corey Fuller and Jeremy Ross more on offensive.

Broyles will likely make the final roster, the Lions' official website reports.

Broyles could perhaps get some playing time in three and four-wide sets, but he currently appears to be either fifth or sixth on the depth chart. A breakout candidates in previous years, Broyles is finally healthy, yet finds himself far removed from fantasy relevance.

Broyles played with the second-team offense in Saturday's preseason opener against the Browns, finishing with three receptions for 27 yards on three targets, the Detroit News reports.

With Calvin Johnson held out, Kris Durham was used in two-wide sets, and Kevin Ogletree worked as the No. 3. Broyles seems to be either fifth or sixth in the wide receiver pecking order, but he could perhaps make a run at the No. 3 or 4 spots, as things seem to be fairly open behind Johnson and Golden Tate. Broyles suffered a ruptured Achilles' tendon in October, after suffering torn ACLs in 2011 and 2012.

Ryan Broyles has been working with a speed coach this summer.Broyles has suffered two ACL tears and a torn Achilles' the past three years. The Detroit Free Press observed during the spring that Broyles didn't look as explosive as he did in college. That's to be expected. His explosion has been sapped by injuries. He still appears to be the favorite for No. 3 receiver duties, but isn't really on the fantasy radar outside of deeper PPR leagues.
