Burress misses practice, has tests on injury

The status of Plaxico Burress remains in question after the Giants star wideout missed his second straight day of practice and underwent tests at a hospital for his neck injury on Thursday. Giants coach Tom Coughlin said the tests showed the injury was related to a muscle and wasn’t serious, but he wasn’t sure whether Burress would return to practice on Friday.

“There‚Äôs nothing (with the) bone, no vertebra or anything like that,” Coughlin said. “But the reason that all of the tests were made was because he continued to have this stiff neck and issues along those lines. … So we wanted to rule everything out. All I got was on the field that there was nothing of the nature of any kind of vertebrae or anything like that.”
