Burress' status? Only Plaxico knows for sure

Over on Bleeding Green Nationthere is speculation that Plaxico Burress might not play for the Giants Sunday.

Hopefully, that is just wishful thinking.

Burress has, of course, been dealing with an ankle injury that has been keeping him off the practice field. He did have the ankle evaluated by a specialist this week, but teammates are expecting Burress to be on the field Sunday night.

Here's what Antonio Pierce told NFL.com about Burress.

"Plax, we call him 'Game Day,"' Pierce said. "On game day he shows up regardless of what anyone wants to say about him during the week. The guy has been in the league long enough, eight years, and he knows how to take care of himself."

I guess we'll find out Sunday night.
