It looks as though the Lions will be without a key piece on offense for the foreseeable future.
According to the Michigan State Police, Lions WR Nate Burleson was involved a car accident around 2:25 am on I-696 near Drake and Farmington Hills after returning home from watching MNF Tuesday. The report (via CBS Detroit) also mentions that alcohol wasn’t a factor and occurred when Burleson was “trying to catch an object that was falling off his seat.”
MSP Lt. Brian Shaw said that Burleson hit the median wall when he reached down and tried to pick it up.
No other injuries were reported and no tickets were issued in the single car accident.
Nate Burleson broke his arm in 2 places in an early morning car accident. Will undergo surgery. Obviously a huge loss for the #Lions.
