Lions put WRs Young, Broyles on IR

The Detroit Lions put wide receivers Titus Young and Ryan

Broyles on injured reserve Tuesday.

Young has been inactive for the last two games after what coach

Jim Schwartz called ”unacceptable” behavior in a game against

Green Bay last month. Broyles needs surgery on his right knee.

Detroit also released safety Erik Coleman, signed wide receiver

Kris Durham from the practice squad and signed safety Tyrell


The Lions signed Troy Burrell to the practice squad.

Young was listed with a knee problem earlier this season, but in

recent weeks the team made it clear that he was in exile because of

his behavior and not an injury.
