Detroit Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson can't seem to catch a break; or at least not the kind of break that he wants. Mathew Stafford and Calvin Johnson are going to have to do without their partner in crime going forward. Burleson was in a car accident Monday night/ Tuesday morning. He is alive and will eventually be fine, but he is not going to be catching any footballs after breaking his arm in two places.
