Burleson tweets pictures of his car

October, 1, 2013
ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Detroit Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson, who broke both bones in his left forearm in a one-car crash last week, published pictures of the interior of the car Tuesday afternoon.

Pizza included.

On his instagram account, where he posted the pictures of the Happy's Pizza boxes and the slices thrown about the car, he wrote this: "I'm releasing these pix for 2 reasons: 1) I walked away from a totalled (sic) vehicle #Blessed 2) I have to hear all the pizza jokes...lol I'll start-Yes I am the 5th Ninja Turtle. #LovePizza #LetTheJokesBegin"

Burleson, who was with the Lions on the sideline for their 40-32 win over Chicago on Sunday, is receiving the Ed Block Courage Award at a dinner Tuesday night in Detroit for his return from a broken leg last season.
