Nate Burleson will undergo surgery to repair his broken leg and could be sidelined up to eight months.
He's not only done for the season, but could also miss the entirety of offseason practices as well. Due $4.5 million in 2013, the 31-year-old faces an uncertain future in Detroit. If Ryan Broyles and Titus Young prove up to the task in the second half of the season, Burleson will almost certainly be asked to restructure his contract. It's possible that he will be released altogether.
