Giants wideout Plaxico Burress accidentally shot himself in the leg at a nightclub Friday night. Burress spent the night at the hospital, and his wound is not considered life-threatening.
Burress had already been sidelined for this Sundays’ game against the Washington Redskins due to a hamstring injury. He was not at team meetings and did not attend Saturday’s walkthrough. Specific details of the shooting are not available, and the Giants are not commenting on the incident.
This marks another black spot in what has not been a good year off the field for Burress. He has been suspended and fined several times this season for missing meetings and arguing with officials. After all his woes, Burress insisted he was not a distraction to his team. Burress is currently playing on a $35million contract that he signed after the Giants won the Super Bowl last season.
