Detroit Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson's return to action won't come this week.

Despite practicing all week, the Detroit Lions have decided to rule out wide receiver Nate Burleson for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears. This means that Burleson's return to action will have to wait at least another week. Clearly, the Lions don't want to rush Burleson back and risk a re-injury of his arm, so he is out this week.

Also (likely) out this week are offensive tackle Corey Hilliard, defensive end Ziggy Ansah and cornerback Bill Bentley. All three players are listed as doubtful for Sunday's game after missing practice all week, so don't expect any of them to be able to play in Chicago.
