Pizza loving wide receiver Nate Burleson, who recently signed on with the Cleveland Browns after spending his past four years with the Detroit Lions, has reportedly fractured his left arm again during the Browns minicamp.

At least it wasn’t a pizza’s fault this time, but it was Burleson’s same arm that he broke last season in a minor car accident caused by him while driving and trying to hold onto pizza boxes that where slipping off the seat.

Burleson’s break appears to be minor, and shouldn’t keep him sidelined long, but it’s not exactly the news the Browns need after finding out that fellow wide receiver Josh Gordon may be facing a season-long suspension for once again violating the substance abuse policy of the NFL.

Welcome to the Cleveland Browns, Johnny Manziel. Are you a cursing or a blessing to this team?
First Gordon now Burleson. It's like the football gods don't want Manziel to have any shot.
