Plaxico Burress accidentally shoots self in leg



http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/8866348?MSNHPHMA

Plaxico Burress' controversial year has just taken a turn for the worse.


The New York Giants wide receiver accidentally shot himself in the leg on Friday night, FOXSports.com has learned, not long after being ruled out of Sunday's game against the Redskins with a hamstring injury.


He spent the night in the hospital and the injuries are not believed to be life-threatening. The team is still trying to gather further information on the incident.
"We are gathering information, just like everyone else," NFL spokesman Joe Browne told The Associated Press.

This has been a troubled year for Burress, who opened the season with a lengthy contract dispute. The 31-year-old was also suspended for a game and fined $117,500 for missing a team meeting and failing to notify the team of his absence. He said he had a family emergency.

He also was fined $45,000 by the NFL for his conduct during a game against 49ers in October when he abused an official and tossed a ball into the stands.
The Giants are atop the NFC standings with a 10-1 record and are vying for their seventh straight win Sunday when they face Washington.
Burress initially pulled his injured hamstring in the Giants' win over Baltimore on Nov. 16. He then aggravated the injury in the opening series last Sunday against Arizona, and then sat out the rest of that game.


Domenik Hixon, who is dealing with an ankle injury, will start in Burress' place Sunday.

Burress caught the winning pass in the Giants' Super Bowl win over the New England Patriots. He signed a five-year, $35 million contract hours before the season opened in September.

The signing came after an unsettling offseason during which Burress was fined $25,000 for refusing to practice during a mandatory minicamp in June. He also missed most of training camp at the University at Albany with a sprained ankle. He insisted the injury ó not his contract ó kept him off the field.

Despite his lack of practice, Burress started in the opener against Washington and caught 10 passes for 133 yards. The following week, he had five catches for 81 yards and a touchdown in a win over St. Louis.

The rest of the season has not been as productive. The most passes he has caught in any game since is four in a loss to Cleveland on Oct. 13, the game which followed his suspension.

Burress has 35 catches for 454 yards and four touchdowns in a season in which he has constantly drawn double coverage. His streak of receptions in 115 consecutive games ended last week in Arizona. He aggravated his hamstring injury during the first series and did not return.

It was the sixth-longest active streak in the league, dating to Nov. 26, 2000 against Cincinnati, Burress' rookie season in Pittsburgh.
Signed as a free agent in 2005, Burress had caught a pass in all 56 previous games in which he had played for the Giants.

Yup, giants are doing fine without him this year as well so hopefully his ass can be expendable soon and gets traded.

Re: Plaxico Burress accidentally shoots self in leg

5 years and $30mil when he was already showing signs of things to come... hopefully it was worth it.

What a douche. He's giving a bad name to professional athletes, hand gun owners and club goers everywhere.
