The bones that Nate Burleson broke during his pizza rescue.




There was a funny joke over at Windy City Gridiron that said Nate was trying to handle a Chicago Style Deep dish pizza but was unsuccessful. Many Lions fans may wonder which bones Nate Burleson broke in his unfortunate accident. Well those bones are called the Ulna and Radius.

As Schwartz mentioned in his early morning press conference when confirming the news of Nate's injury, it was not a compound fracture. Which simply means breaking a particular bone in two different places. In regards to breaking both Ulna and Radius bones, according to the OrthoInfo website, "depending on the complexity of the fracture and the stability of the repair, a cast or brace may be necessary for 2 to 6 weeks after surgery." Therefore the predictions of Nate returning in November is very accurate. The good news is that this injury heals relatively fast. Get well Nate!
