UPDATE: Lions coach Jim Schwartz says, “Nate will be back at some point”.  No plans to place him on Injured Reserve list.

Freep.com has more on Burleson’s injury and the car accident:

Detroit Lions receiver Nate Burleson’s season is in jeopardy after he broke his arm in two places in a single-car accident on westbound I-696 at about 2:25 a.m. today in Farmington Hills.

Burleson was driving a 2009 GMC Yukon SUV when he was distracted by pizza falling off his front seat, according to Michigan State Police Lt. Michael Shaw. He lost control of the car and struck the center median wall.

Burleson, who was wearing a seatbelt, was transported by emergency medical responders to a local hospital, a police statement said.

Police say alcohol was not a factor.

Burleson has been a key part of the offense so far this season.  He missed much of last season after breaking his leg during a game.

Burleson made news early this season when he promised to donate money to Michigan schools every time he dropped a pass.

Wishing the best to Nate Burleson.
