Plaxico Burress shoots himself in the leg

Jay Glazer

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.

Wow. I suppose this means Burress, who always plays well against us, will miss next week's showdown with the Giants in North Jersey.
