Lions put WRs Young, Broyles on IR
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.
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.
