New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress has suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the leg and was hospitalized for his injury as of Friday. The injury is reportedly non-life threatening.
Not many details are available. However, it is known that the incident occurred a short time after he was put out of the Washington Redskins game on Sunday due to a injured hamstring.
Domenik Hixon will play in Sunday's game as a replacement starter for Burress.
