Plaxico Burress shot - out indefinitely

Fox Sports and ESPN are reporting that Plaxico Burress shot himself in the leg late last night while carrying a loaded gun in a nightclub. Apparently it went off unexpectedly (one might have guessed that). The injuries are not life threatening but he's out indefinitely.

My thoughts: As much as Burress has had plenty of self-inflicted wounds this season, this one is pretty much the last straw for any fantasy owner. If you were wondering whether he was ever regaining his form again, you have your answer. I wasn't convinced he was going to do anything on the field that was noteworthy anyway so this is no big shock, although HOW he ended his season is of course a big one.

Hope he heals ok, but man, some people just don't seem to use their head for more than something to prop their helmet on.

Pick up Dominek Hixon if you haven't already and it wouldn;t be bad to have Steve Smith or even Amani Toomer around in case Manning leans on them instead.

I guess Hixon now gets his shot. We'll know what fantasy value he has shortly.

Given the money they gave Plax and the trouble he has caused since he put pen to contract - Burress better hope they don't discover how disposable he might be.
