Lions have depth at WR for a change

After injuries cut short his first two NFL seasons, Detroit Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles says he's fully healthy and in a good position to win a roster spot this season.
The 2012 second-round draft pick has been thrust into a position competition by the arrivals of free agent receiver Golden Tate and rookie tight end Eric Ebron.
Broyles is battling Kris Durham, who played in all 16 games for Detroit last season, veteran Kevin Ogletree, and 2013 Lions practice squad player Corey Fuller for the chance to join Tate, Calvin Johnson, and return specialist Jeremy Ross in the group of receivers.
Coach Jim Caldwell says all four players could see extended playing time against the Buffalo Bills on Thursday in the team's preseason finale.
