Lions WR Nate Burleson broke his arm in two places in an early morning car accident. Will undergo surgery.
Obviously a huge loss for the Lions, but this means Ryan Broyles will given a chance to step in as the WR2 in what's a heavy passing offense in Detroit. He was on a snap count last week in his return, but that could quickly evaporate with this news. HC Jim Schwartz commented after the game that every time Broyles gets snaps he makes plays so the team has confidence in him to take over that spot.
