"It's a concern," Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said after the game.
Broyles was injured on the Lions' second offensive series of the game after catching a bubble screen and turning it up field for a 3-yard gain.
Broyles came to the sideline after the play and was worked on by trainers on the training table for several minutes. He then back into the locker room. He returned for a brief time in uniform in the second quarter, but did not return to the game. He came out for the second half in street clothes with his right knee wrapped.
"He couldn't go back (in)," Schwartz said. "We'll do some tests tomorrow."
Any significant injury would be a huge blow to the Lions offense. The Lions are already without
Broyles was just getting back to 100 percent from an ACL injury in the other knee last November.
TIGHT END PRODUCTION
The absence of Young and Broyles early in the game meant the Lions offense was going to need some other guys to take on more of the load, along with Johnson.
Pettigrew averaged 14.3 yards per reception on three catches and Scheffler 18.3 yards on his three catches. The tandem wasn't just making catches, but they were making them down the field when the Lions were short their outside threats.
Pettigrew's touchdown was a terrific grab over two defenders. It was a much-needed play for the fourth-year player after some recent fumbles and drops had plagued him.
Scheffler left the game briefly to get checked for a concussion after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit, but returned.
SUH AND FAIRLEY
The Lions' defensive tackle tandem of the future is looking pretty good right now.
Suh finished with six tackles, one sack, four tackles for loss and six quarterback hits. It seems the rumors of Suh's demise were greatly exaggerated. Suh has 11 quarterback hits over his last two games.
Fairley, who made the start for veteran
The Lions have found themselves a force to be reckoned with in the middle of their defense.
