Nate Burleson injury: Lions WR returns to practice

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions got wide receiver Nate Burleson back at practice on Tuesday.

The Detroit Lions held their first practice since their bye week on Tuesday. There is no official injury report for the practice (we'll have to wait until Wednesday for that), but there was some notable news, mainly involving wide receiver Nate Burleson.

Burleson was able to practice on Tuesday, marking his return from a broken arm. Burleson had been out since suffering a broken arm in a car accident back in September, but he's now to the point where he is able to practice. That doesn't mean he is going to play this week, though.

The Lions clearly aren't going to rush Burleson back and risk doing more damage to his arm. What's more, we previously heard that it was unlikely that he was going to play this week. As of right now, it looks like Burleson's official return to game action may still be at least a week or two away.

In other injury news, the Lions were without five players at practice on Tuesday: wide receiver Calvin Johnson, offensive tackle Corey Hilliard, defensive end Ziggy Ansah, cornerback Bill Bentley and safety Louis Delmas.
