Detroit Lions receiver Nate Burleson was involved in a one-car accident overnight and sustained a broken arm, according to a press release by the team. Burleson will undergo surgery today, and his season appears to be in jeopardy.

Detroit Free Press reporter Dave Birkett is reporting that Burleson's accident occurred because a pizza fell off his front seat around 2:25 a.m., which led to the receiver breaking his arm in two places.

Once again..bad things happen at that time of night.

I wonder if it was good pizza or that cardboard sold from PH, Dom. & PJ's?

I'll bet he's glad that it wasn't his hole finger.

Then he should have let the cardboard hit the floor of his car and fed it to his dog.
