Nate Burleson believes he’s in line for fast recovery

Lions wideout Nate Burleson suffered an injury in a car accident last week. According to the Detroit Free Press, Burleson is in for a speedy recovery.

“I’ve gotten some good news, but I’m not going to speak about that,” Burleson said. “I don’t want to get yelled at by Coach Schwartz, but what was told to me is that what it typically takes to get back, I’ll be back sooner than that. So I’ll let you all do your research and figure that out. Work the numbers on that yourself.”

Burleson plans on reaching 1,000 yards receiving, so he wants to play in enough games to accomplish that feat.
