Burleson was being counted on to be Seattle's number one receiver while Deion Branch (knee) and Bobby Engram (clavicle) both eased their way back in to the lineup as they recovered from their injuries.
He went down in the third quarter after being Seattle's only spark on offense when he hauled in a 20-yard touchdown pass from Matt Hasselbeck late in the first half to draw Seattle within seven points before halftime.
On the day, Burleson managed to haul in five catches for 60 yards and the one touchdown and finished as Seattle's leading receiver on the day.
Burleson came to Seattle as a free agent from the Minnesota Vikings in the 2006 season and has managed to post 73 receptions for 956 yards and 12 touchdowns in his 33 games with the Seahawks.
Burleson has also made an impact on special teams returning two punts and one kickoff for touchdowns over the past two seasons.
