Seahawks' Nate Burleson is out at least this week, maybe for rest of season

Seattle receiver Nate Burleson has high ankle sprain, hopes he can return before end of season.

Seattle Times staff reporter

Wide receiver Nate Burleson will miss at least this week's game because of a high ankle sprain he suffered during a punt return Sunday in Houston. He could be out for the season because of the injury, which generally keeps a player sidelined four to six weeks.

However, Burleson attempted to play through the injury last Sunday, catching one pass after suffering the injury. He is hoping it doesn't end his season.

Burleson leads the team with 812 yards receiving, and his 63 receptions rank second on the team. This is his fourth season with the Seahawks, and he has the option of becoming a free agent after this season.
