Detroit Lions receiver Nate Burleson doesn't have to worry about driving to get pizza for a while. Burleson broke his arm in late September when he crashed his SUV while reaching for falling pizza while driving home. Frozen pizza maker DiGiorno came up with a good solution for Burleson, sending him coupons for a year's supply of free pizza. Burleson posted photos of the coupons and the letter from DiGiorno on his Instagram and Twitter accounts. The letter said, "We hope you are feeling better after your recent car accident and are on the road to recovery. DiGiorno Pizza understands the challenges that come with carryout and delivery pizza so we're sending you a gift along with a year's supply of DiGiorno Pizza so you can skip carryout." DiGiorno also sent Burleson a pizza board and cutter. Via his Twitter account, @Nate13Burleson, he said, "Huge SO to Digiorno Pizza for the year supply of free pizza and the gifts! ItsNotDeliveryItsDiGiorno" Burleson said after Sunday's comeback win over the Dallas Cowboys that he hoped to return to the field after the bye week when the Lions play the Chicago Bears. "I'm trying to shoot for Chicago," Burleson said. "I just taped it up. I'm out of the brace now so I was able to catch a few balls before the game, trying to get myself back in a rhythm. "I gotta jump in the water swimming. These guys are playing at a high level. So I don't want there to be any drop off when I get back on the field." The Lions will need Burleson as they lost receiver Ryan Broyles to a ruptured Achilles in Sunday's game.
