At Least The Pizzas Escaped Serious Injury

Nate Burleson leaned over early Tuesday morning to try to adjust one of the pizza boxes falling off a seat in his black 2009 GMC Yukon. By doing so, the Detroit Lions wide receiver could be out of action for a long time.

Burleson broke his left arm in a single-car crash on Interstate 696 heading westbound near Drake Road in Farmington Hills, Mich., around 2:25 a.m. Tuesday. Police were called to the scene. Burleson, who complained of pain in his arm, was transported to a local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, according to Michigan State Police Lt. Michael Shaw.

Turns out his arm is broken in two places, coach Jim Schwartz said Tuesday. Burleson will have surgery Wednesday to repair the broken bones in his forearm but will not be placed on season-ending injured reserve, as Schwartz said the receiver is expected back at some point this season. Burleson will still travel with the team while he is injured.

"It was actually a whole pizza," Shaw said. "He had purchased two whole pizzas, and one was sitting on top of the other one, and I guess when he was driving one of them was slipping off, and he was reaching over to push it back onto the seat and overcorrected and hit the median wall."

Shaw said alcohol was not a factor in the crash and that police did not do a drug screen because the 32-year-old Burleson showed no signs of intoxication. Sarnoff told Werder that Burleson had been watching "Monday Night Football" and crashed his Yukon on the way home.

Sounds more like a story about how a baseball player would get hurt than a football player. They always seem to have the weirdest injury mishaps.

Pizza is serious business. At least he had something to eat while he was waiting for an ambulance.

Didn't Shaun Alexander have a totally random injury from slipping on a banana peel or something?

Kevin Kolb slipped on a wet rubber mat running between training fields in camp this year.

Noted Papa John's pitchman, Sheriff Peyton Manning, could have taught him how to balance those boxes better!

Coming off his best game since 2007 as well, Staffords completed almost 90% of his passes to him... Figures

The joy of being a lions fan I guess
