Lions try out three receivers with Nate Burleson injured

With Nate Burleson injured with a broken arm for the time being, the Detroit Lions brought in three receivers to try out.

Those receivers were Lavelle Hawkins, Charles Hawkins and Anthony Armstrong. Lavelle Hawkins spent his first five years with the Titans after Tennessee selected him in the fourth round of the 2008 draft.

Charles Hawkins is a rookie who had a brief stint with the Cardinals. Armstrong has bounced around to a few teams but spent the most time with the Redskins.

The Lions also worked out quarterback John Parker Wilson.
