ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions say wide receiver Nate Burleson was in a one-car accident and needs surgery on a broken arm.

The team said in a statement Tuesday morning that the police have confirmed alcohol was not involved.

Burleson has made a team-high 19 catches and his 239 yards receiving trail only teammate Calvin Johnson this season. The 11-year veteran had six receptions for 116 yards Sunday — his highest total since 2007 — to help Detroit win in Washington for the first time in franchise history.

The Lions likely will have to lean on other receivers, such as Ryan Broyles, this Sunday at home against the Chicago Bears in a matchup of the two NFC North teams off to the best start through three weeks.
