Lions WR Burleson's season may be over after broken arm
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The 2-1 Detroit Lions suffered a big blow Tuesday.
Receiver Nate Burleson suffered a broken arm in an early morning car accident on I-696.
The good news is that police say alcohol was not a factor. The bad news is that it appears pizza was.
Burleson was reportedly returning from watching Monday Night Football at 2:25 a.m., when according to a Detroit Free Press report, he was distracted by pizza falling off his front seat.
Burleson lost control of his vehicle and hit the center median.
His arm is broken in two places, and with surgery scheduled for Wednesday, his season could be over.
