Nate Burleson: I’ll Return Soon, Gain 1,000 Yards This Season


Nate Burleson has some lofty expectations for a guy who can’t even eat and drive.

Burleson who broke his arm in a one car crash last week, vows to return and return in a big way.   The veteran wide receiver told the Detroit News that “he’ll be back soon, and still will gain 1,000 yards receiving.”

When I get back, I’m still going to try to go after that 1,000 yards,” Burleson told the Detroit News. “So that means I’ve got to have enough games to do it, which means I should be back soon.”

Burleson had 239 yards through three games, meaning he needs 761 to get to 1,000.
