The Lions may be getting some reinforcements in the next couple of days. Receiver Nate Burleson (forearm) could be back next week against Tampa Bay.
Don't forget, with the Thanksgiving Day game on the horizon, the Lions will play their next two games — against Tampa Bay and then Green Bay — in the next 11 days. Barring any setbacks next week, Burleson should be back to full strength and able to play in both of those games. Burleson is worth taking a shot on if you're hurting at WR. The Lions face some tough rushing defenses down the stretch which could mean more throwing opportunities.
