DETROIT (AP) - Detroit Lions receiver Nate Burleson is active against Tampa Bay, two months after breaking his left arm in a one-car crash.
Burleson says he was distracted by pizza boxes sliding off the front passenger seat before his car hit a wall.
The Lions also have running back Joique Bell and safety Glover Quin in the lineup Sunday. Both were listed as questionable with Achilles tendon injuries. Detroit defensive end Ezekiel ''Ziggy'' Ansah (left ankle) and cornerback Bill Bentley (knee) are healthy enough to play after missing the previous two games.
The Buccaneers are starting Keith Tandy in place of suspended safety Dashon Goldson. Tampa Bay linebacker Adam Hayward and left guard Jamon Meredith are replacing previously ruled out starters Mason Foster and Carl Nicks.
