Nate Burleson likely to return to lineup Sunday

DETROIT (WXYZ) - All signs point to wide receiver Nate Burleson being back in the lineup Sunday when the Lions host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Burleson has been out since injuring his arm in a car accident September 24, missing seven games in the process.

Burleson was a full participant in practice Thursday and Friday, and is officially listed as probable for Sunday's game at Ford Field.

Also listed as probable are defensive end Ziggy Ansah, cornerback Bill Bentley, safety Louis Delmas, defensive tackle Andre Fluellen, cornerback Jonte Green, tackle Corey Hilliard, wide receiver Calvin Johnson, tight end Brandon Pettigrew, and offensive guard Larry Warford.

Running back Joique Bell, defensive end Israel Idonije, and safety Glover Quin are all listed as questionable.
