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.
