Good morning and ROOOOOAAARRR!!!!

As you probably know by now, Detroit Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson is out for a while after breaking both bones in his left forearm in a single-car crash early Tuesday morning.

Burleson's injury costs Detroit one of its most productive receivers and a valued locker-room voice for at least a little while, until Burleson feels well enough to be around again. No doubt it is a difficult blow for the Lions offense.

Players told the Detroit Free Press the injury makes for a big loss; the newspaper has raw video of the accident scene. Free Press columnist Drew Sharp is calling this the latest instance of Lions luck, but the injury doesn't appear it will end Burleson's season.

The guy most likely to take Burleson's place? That role will probably fall to Ryan Broyles.

And now a look at non-Burleson Lions links from around the Interwebs:
