ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -Seattle Seahawks receiver Nate Burleson limped off the field midway through the third quarter after hurting his left knee against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
Burleson, who caught a 20-yard touchdown pass in the first half, was hurt when he tripped himself up while trying to cut back for a pass at the Bills 20. He lay on the field for several minutes and required help to get up. Burleson then limped off, favoring his left leg, and trainers iced his left knee on the bench.
The Seahawks announced that Burleson was out for the game, the injury further depleting the team's already banged-up receiving corps. Seattle began the season opener minus two starters: Deion Branch (knee) and Bobby Engram (shoulder).
Seattle also lost starting running back Maurice Morris, who did not return after hurting his right knee early in the second half.
