Detroit Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson is ahead of schedule as he heals from a season-ending broken leg injury suffered in 2012. The 31-year-old dropped by "NFL AM" on Monday to break down receivers in Thursday's 2013 NFL Draft and said he recently got the good news. "The great news is I'm healed up," Burleson said. "I just got news from my doctors that the bone is good. I'm running and jumping three months ahead of schedule." Currently the veteran receiver is slotted to be Calvin Johnson's main foil this season, but said he would welcome competition if the Lions took a wide receiver with one of their high draft picks.
