Plaxico's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, had this to say in a conference call earlier with the media:

"It's a private matter and it has to do with Plax and his family. He had some responsibilities he had to take care of as it relates to his family," Rosenhaus said. "The most unfortunate thing here is there was a lack of communication. In talking to Plax, he feels bad about that, obviously, and it's something we can't do anything about now."

Rosenhaus also said Plax will appeal. Here's the rest of the story from Mike Garafolo

Coach Tom Coughlin didn't have much to add on the situation, but he did say this:

"We want to make sure that the message is loud and clear," Coughlin said. "We've had success here because of the team concept. The team concept means that everyone is accountable and responsible, and we don't let the other guys down. And that's what we're trying to do -- we're trying to acknowledge that one of our guys has had a violation of team rules. We want him back, and we want him back under very good terms. We try to do this the right way."

Eli Manning had this to say on the Plax suspension:

"You just move on," Manning said. "We've had worse things happen. Obviously (Burress) will be back in two weeks. It's not like he's injured or anything like that. We can handle a game without him for a week."

Here is the rest from Coughlin and Eli
