Detroit Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson broke an arm in a car accident and is slated to undergo surgery on Tuesday. We likely won't get a timeline for his return until after the procedure is completed, but it's safe to assume he'll miss at least a few weeks. In the interim, the Lions may have to lean on Ryan Broyles more heavily than they had planned. He's coming off a torn ACL, and coach Jim Schwartz said they kept his role limited during his season debut on Sunday.
