Burleson has been sidelined since playing in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins. The following week, Burleson broke his arm in a car accident as he was trying to re-position a pizza box on the passenger seat. Incredibly, that mishap has now turned into free pizza for a year thanks to a DiGiorno's sponsorship.
Should Burleson return in two weeks, he will be arriving in time to face the Chicago Bears. The Lions are flying high at the moment, coming off a miracle 31-30 win over the Dallas Cowboys before heading into a bye this week.
The 11-year NFL veteran has played for the Minnesota Vikings, Seattle Seahawks and Detroit. He enjoyed his best season back in 2004 for Minnesota, catching 68 passes for 1,006 yards and nine touchdowns. Last year, Burleson only played in six games due to a broken leg, catching 27 passes for 240 yards.
