Receiver Bryan Burnham is set to rejoin the Lions on the field.

After missing the Lions’ 18-17 victory over Toronto in Week 4, Burnham has recovered from a lower body injury. The 29-year-old has 16 catches for 280 yards in three games this season.

Burnham is coming off his third straight 1,000-yard season in 2018 after registering 67 catches for 1,029 yards and career-high nine touchdowns. He has spent his entire five-year career with the Lions while earning CFL all-star nods in 2017 and 2018.
