Detroit Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles is out for the remainder of the season with a torn Achilles suffered against the Dallas Cowboys and will have surgery Tuesday.

Broyles is out for the third consecutive season with a major injury.

The former second-round draft pick from Oklahoma tore his left anterior cruciate ligament as a senior for the Sooner. He tore his right anterior cruciate ligament last year as a rookie.

Broyles caught eight passes for 85 yards this season.

"If anybody can come back from it, he can," Lions coach Jim Schwartz told reporters.
