The Lions have a big division matchup with the Bears this Sunday, and unfortunately they will be a wide receiver short. According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, Nate Burleson broke his arm in two places and will need surgery today. The injury was sustained in a single car accident, and no alcohol was reportedly involved. Big loss for the Lions passing offense.
I'm told no alcohol was involved in the accident.
