The Detroit Lions might be out a receiver for the rest of the season. Wait til you hear why. 

Nate Burleson crashed his SUV early Tuesday morning, around 2:25 a.m., and police state that alcohol was not a factor. Pizza was the actual culprit. 

Burleson became distracted while driving through the Detroit suburbs when he saw a pizza sitting in the front seat begin to slide off. He reached to save it from hitting the car floor, lost control of his vehicle and crashed it into a median.

All jokes aside, Burleson was wearing a seatbelt and was luckily uninjured aside from a broken arm. 

There goes the season. Was it worth it?
