Detroit Lions WR Nate Burleson‘s arm is super glued together. NO STITCHES… SUPERGLUE. For real!

Burleson returned to practice today in a very limited fashion.

“I want to be out there for the guys and be able to lead and talk to them,” the receiver said after practice. “Every little bit helps, and we got to win this game.

“I’m not going to be a ghost wandering around the facility. I want to be seen, I want to be heard and I still want to show these guys how to approach each day in practice.’ – mlive

Burleson broke his arm in two places in an auto accident on September 24th and went into surgery the next day. Two long incisions were made on his arm and it is superglued together.

For real. I still have a hard time believing that part of the story, but here is the photo evidence.

Crazy talk. Next time I break my arm, I am just going into the craft closet and pulling out the Elmer’s glue and putting it all back together again.

Anyway, back to the story, there still is no time table for Burleson’s return. But he is trying to make his presence felt. Talk about having hands like glue.
