Plaxico Suspended

NFC East foe Plaxico Burress was suspended for one game by the New York Giants on Wednesday for an undisclosed violation of team rules. Various media outlets have said it was due to the fact he did not show up for practice on Monday and would not return any phone calls from team officials.

General manager Jerry Reese and coach Tom Coughlin informed Burress of the suspension Wednesday morning before the team held a bye-week practice.

The suspension takes effect immediately, meaning Burress will miss the Giants’ game against the Seattle Seahawks on Oct. 5.

The Giants have a bye week, so Burress will lose two paychecks under the suspension. He will not be with the team during the bye week, and won’t be allowed to practice with the team next week.

Brian Westbrook is Officially Day to Day

Andy Reid held a press conference Monday and updated the media as to the severity of Brian Westbrook’s injury, or lack thereof.  Westbrook left the Pittsburgh game after he stepped on his own teammate and landed awkwardly on his other ankle.  Although Westbrook limped off the field, it didn’t look too serious.

During the press conference, Big Red stated that there was no ligament or tendon damage.  Reid stated that Westbrook’s status is day-to-day.  The injury is being listed as a sprain and Westbrook hasn’t been ruled out for this Sunday night’s game against the Chicago Bears.

Personally, I think the Eagles play this one safe and plan for the Chicago Bears without Westbrook in the lineup and let him get back to 100%.  I think we can handle the Bears without him and this will give some key reserves the reps they desperately need.
