Lions WR Nate Burleson could be back this week against the Buccaneers
Doctor’s have still not cleared Nate Burleson, but he claims he is ready to play since breaking his forearm in a car accident trying to save a pizza.
“I’m saying there’s a chance,” Burleson said. “Like I said a couple weeks ago, I prepare every week as if I’m going to play. I want to play, I want to get out on the field. Still got to be smart and listen to the doctors and listen to the coaches, but the week started off good, getting into the gameplan and trying to figure out if I got a role this week, which looks like there’s a possibility.”
Burleson broke his forearm in two places Sept. 24 when he crashed his car into a median while trying to save two pizzas from sliding off his passenger seat.
