Bryan Burnham has returned to practice with the B.C. Lions for the first time since suffering broken ribs in Week 3.

The three-time CFL all-star left the team’s blowout win over the Toronto Argonauts after sustaining a hit over the middle from defensive back Shaquille Richardson. He has since missed four games with the Lions going 3-1 in his absence.

Burnham made six catches for 66 yards and one touchdown over two starts this season. He was replaced at boundary slotback by second-year target Keon Hatcher, who made 27 catches for 331 yards and one touchdown over four starts in place of Burnham.

The Tulsa product sits fifth all-time in club history with 6,682 career receiving yards to go along with 441 receptions and 39 touchdowns.

The Lions (5-1) are scheduled to host the Edmonton Elks (2-5) on Saturday night with kickoff slated for 10:00 p.m. EDT.
