WR Burress Reportedly Shoots Himself in Leg


Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress reportedly spent the night in a hospital after accidentally shooting himself in the leg on Friday. FOXSports.com said the wound is not believed to be life-threatening.

Burress had already been ruled out of Sunday’s game against Washington because of a hamstring injury. It’s been a whirlwind season for Burress, who signed a contract extension just before the team’s season-opener against the Redskins in September. He went on to register 10 catches for 133 yards against Washington, but his numbers have dropped considerably in the face of double teams, a suspension and injury.

For the season, he has just 35 receptions for a team-high 454 yards with four touchdowns. Burress was suspended one game in October for violating team rules, held out of the starting lineup against Pittsburgh for missing a treatment session and fined by the league for verbally abusing an official.
