Nate Burleson re-injures fractured arm

When it rains in Cleveland, it pours. Hours after catching wind of a potential year-long suspension for wide receiver Josh Gordon, reports circulated surrounding an injury sustained by free agent addition Nate Burleson.

Burleson’s fracture is on the same arm that he broke last season in Detroit. His newest fracture, however, is not expected to keep him out of the start of training camp this summer, though he is expected to miss the remainder of the offseason program.

Burleson missed almost two months last season in Detroit with the broken arm. In 2012, he missed the last two months with a fractured right leg. In a rather contentious press conference on Friday night, the Browns would not comment on the news, stating that “it’s a critical component not to discuss a player’s health.”
