Burleson re-broke his left arm in minicamp on May 9. He is expected back in action for training camp.


Nate Burleson was brought in to be the team's third receiver and to push Greg Little for the second spot. However, with Josh Gordon's suspension, the Cleveland receivers have been jolted up the depth chart - perhaps to places they're not capable of filling. Burleson hasn't been a successful top receiver in his career, topping 1,000 yards just once - back in 2004. He'll be 33 by the start of the season, not typically the age at which a player develops new skills and grows into a star. Despite increased opportunity due to Gordon's absence, Burleson's production probably would have been higher with Gordon in the fold. (May 14)
