Browns WR Nate Burleson doesn't have a broken arm.
“It was reported a lot worse than it is,” Burleson said Tuesday, via Pat McManamon of ESPN.com. “It looks a lot worse than it is.”
Burleson explained that he didn’t re-break the arm that he first fractured last year while trying to keep a pizza box from sliding out of the front passenger seat of his car. Instead, the hardware used to fix the break moved after he hit the arm during offseason practice.
“I’m kind of rebuilt, like Robocop,” Burleson said “Sometimes you have to go in and fix a little bit. It was minor, though. I’ve had much worse. . . . The good news is the plan is to play 16-plus games, and that’s going to happen.”
Burleson could see starter's snaps assuming Josh Gordon is suspended as expected. Burleson is capable of putting up decent numbers in a starting role, but the Browns are expected to go run-heavy and feature Jordan Cameron in the passing game if Gordon is out.
