Lions Wide Receiver Played Second Half Of Sunday's Game With Broken Ribs

He wasn't leaving the season finale early.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kalif Raymond told reporters Monday that he played the second half of Sunday's win over the Green Bay Packers with broken ribs.

It's not really clear when Raymond may have suffered the injury, but he said it happened sometime during the first half, meaning he made his 43-yard catch in the third quarter to set up the first touchdown of the game with broken ribs. 

The big play helped pave the way for the Lions to defeat the Packers and crush their hopes of making it to the playoffs.

Raymond, an undrafted wide receiver out of Holy Cross, has one year remaining on his contract with the Lions.

The twenty-eight-year-old finished his season with 47 receptions for 616 yards and no scores on 64 targets.
