Lions | Nate Burleson involved in car accident
Tue, 24 Sep 2013 06:07:39 -0700
Detroit Lions WR Nate Burleson (arm) broke his arm in two places in a car accident Tuesday, Sept. 24, and will undergo surgery. He's out indefinitely. Alcohol was not involved in the incident. WR Ryan Broyles will take over as the primary slot receiver.
Tough luck for Burleson and the team, after he began the season with 23 catches for 239 yards. Detroit's prolific offense should find Broyles the ball, and he's a good pickup as a bye-week fill-in.
