    New York Giants receiver Plaxico Burress suffered an accidental gunshot wound Friday night in a club, according to multiple sources.

    Details of the incident weren't immediately available, but according to a source the wound was not considered life-threatening.

    Fox Sports.com reported that Burress accidentally shot himself in the leg and spent the night in the hospital.

    Burress, who was not expected to play against the Washington Redskins on Sunday because of a hamstring injury, was not at team meetings and did not attend the team's Saturday walkthrough.

    The Giants organization was not commenting on the story.

    In September, Burress was suspended for a game and fined for a violation of team rules, reportedly failing to appear at a team meeting and being unavailable by phone. At the time, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said that Burress was tending to urgent family matters.

    Burress signed a five-year, $35 million contract this fall after helping the Giants to a Super Bowl championship last season.

    So he's NOT well enough to play on his superbowl winning team this week, yet he IS well enough to hang out at a club and accidentally shoot himself.

    Is it just me or is this the true definition of an idiot?

    This guy really doesn't like to practice does he? I guess he will try anything to get out of it! Maybe the NYG will sign K. Osgood to replace him.

    He is guilty. Belichick had someone in the bar taping the shooting.

    Good! They can use it at the trial.

    Carrying a concealed weapon in a bar can be a no-no depending on the city you are in. If he was in NYC you can bet he'll face criminal charges. Serves him right.

    3.5 yrs. minimum if he didn't have the correct paperwork. What are the chances of that? :tdown: Even if he did, there's the accidental discharge to consider.

    Buh-bye, Plax.

    why do these young men insist on being Gangstas once they get rich... I would never attend a club, where I needed to "pack" heat... it is mind boggling.

    These guys can be targets of lots of jealous nasty people who see a professional athlete parading his bling, spending HUGE cash, driving his special car, and whatever else these guys showcase at these clubs at 3AM in the morning. They can be easy marks...stolen car, stolen bling, followed home where their house can be broken into.

    What amazes me is that many of these young athletes don't seem to have been educated as children on how to stay out of trouble. Don't flash your wealth...don't be a HUGE spender in clubs where many people can't afford the drinks they are putting on credit cards...if you go out, go to well protected and guarded venues at reasonable hours. Stay away from the loose crowd who raises hell, lives on the edge, does drugs, and hangs with nasty people. DON'T CARRY FIREARMS.

    He should be kicked out of the league. To show just how much of an idiot he is and how selfish he is........

    He put his money & jewelry ahead of his wife/girlfriend, his kid, his teammates his owners, his coaches and his fans.

    His reasoning was he took the gun because he was wearing expensive jewelry & carrying a lot of money. So he "had" to be willing to use it and couldn't say it was only for show "just in case" because it was LOADED. So had he had the true expectations to use it to protect himself he had to of known that he ran the risk of possibly killing someone to protect himself. So instead of leaving the bling at home and just going out to enjoy himself, he found the need to put that stuff ahead of everything else in his life.

    That my friends is the story of an idiot. Pretty soon he won't be able to afford jewelry at Walmart.:icon_rofl:

    He's in deep doo doo.

    As for kicking him out of the league come on he didn't intentionally hurt anybody (including himself :lol:).
