Giants | Burress Injured
Sat, 30 Jul 2005 10:11:29 -0700

Giants.com reports New York Giants WR Plaxico Burress was forced to leave the field late in the first practice of training camp Saturday, July 30, with a hyperextended right knee. Burress was injured when he ran a go route down the left sideline and had to stop and go up for a ball thrown by QB Tim Hasselbeck. Burress banged knees with a defender. "There was an under thrown ball, they went up and got tangled," said head coach Tom Coughlin. "They came down, and right now they are calling it a hyperextended knee and we'll see." Burress is undergoing further tests and evaluation to determine the full nature of his injury.

New York Giants TE Jeremy Shockey said he feels WR Plaxico Burress (knee) will be fine. "He's going to be alright. He just came down wrong on his leg and the other guy fell on top of him. He'll be alright. Things like that happen in training camp," said Shockey.

With Plax's height, his long legs are always gonna be more volnerable to injury. Hamstring, knee, etc....

The biggest news from that report was that Burress actually jumped for the ball :busted:

:hehe: I have always thought he couldn't jump....he was just tall. El does a better job of getting the ball at it's highest point.

well thats good I guess..but maybe if he'd actually try and run out of a tackle now and then instead of just falling down in a stiff breeze after he caught :rolleyes: he might be able to avoid precarious weird landings like that.

I think he got a taste of Tom Coughlin's camp... and decided he needed to take a few days off. :thud:
