Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports that Burleson has been cleared for contact: 

Nate Burleson has been cleared for contact on his broken left forearm and barring a late setback should return for the Detroit Lions in Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a person informed of the decision told the Free Press.

Burleson broke the ulna and radius in his left arm in a single-car accident Sept. 24 when he tried to save two pizzas from sliding off his passenger seat.
