Burleson is hopeful that he can return Week 8 and he has discussed wearing some sort of protection. On the lighter side, he called the protection "pretty legit" and "RoboCop stuff." Fitting for a Detroit player, we'd say.
Fantasy impact: In Burleson's absence, Ryan Broyles has yet make an impact. Broyles was expected to pick up the slack, but it seems like Broyles is only a slot option. He has just five catches on the season.
Durham is a decent option again. The Bengals have some injuries in their secondary, so Durham might have a chance to put up the numbers he had against Cleveland. Plus, the Bengals should also have success in moving the ball through the air, so it could turn into a shootout. Durham is a high-upside WR4 this week.
