Nate Burleson back at practice for the Lions

Lions WR Nate Burleson is back at Lions practice for the first time since he was involved in a car accident that resulted in a broken forearm. Burleson says he won’t rush back and will be focusing on his health.

“I have to be smart because the second half of the season is when we need to play well and need to be healthy and I don’t plan on missing anymore games until I’m retired. This whole sitting out thing is really getting old.”

Burleson could give the Lions receiving corp a boost during a playoff push.
