New York Giants receiver Plaxico Burress suffered an accidental gunshot wound Friday night in a club, according to multiple sources.


Details of the incident weren't immediately available, but according to a source the wound was not considered life-threatening.

Burress, who was not expected to play against the Washington Redskins on Sunday with a hamstring injury, was not at team meetings and did not attend the team's Saturday walkthrough.

The Giants organization was not commenting on the story.

I am always amazed that pro athletes making millions bother to go to the type of nightclubs where they could get shot and killed. If I was making 8 figures/year, I would just sit at home and count my money while hot bitches fed me grapes.

i don't understand... who's out to kill Plax? honestly, in this town, he'll never have to pay a meal again. He's lucky he didn't kill an innocent bystander. and who goes to the Latin Quarter? that ain't a hot spot...

I'd hire some villainous looking guy dressed like the villain in the first Indiana Jones movie, and he would troll the night clubs looking for talent, and then he would leave them a mysterious card inviting them to a "special" party, and then when they showed up I'd have the villain guy blindfold them so they didn't know that it was all women except for me, even though I'd probably paint some attractive eyes on the blindfold, and then we would have a great party, me and all those blindfolded women, and then the next morning the villain guy would drop them off at their original night clubs in a big bus with a hundred-dollar bill and some sort of chick liquor, and he'd get their phone numbers so I could have some sort of database where I could then have occasional theme parties of all blondes or all Asians or all women under five-foot-three.

Not that I've thought about this much.

Giants' Burress accidentally shoots self in leg

Plaxico Burress' controversial year has just taken a turn for the worse.

The New York Giants wide receiver accidentally shot himself in the right thigh on Friday night, FOXSports.com has learned, not long after being ruled out of Sunday's game against the Redskins with a hamstring injury.

Burress' bad year
Plaxico Burress Plaxico Burress' troubled season hit a sad low Saturday, when Jay Glazer reported the Giants wide receiver accidentally shot himself in the leg. Here's a look at some notable events in his tumultuous 2008. Timeline

The New York Post cited sources who said that Burress shot himself just after midnight near the VIP entrance to the LQ nightclub on Lexington Avenue and had to be hospitalized.

The Post also said that Burress, 31, was allegedly trying to get into the club with fellow Giants player Antonio Pierce when they were confronted by security guards looking for weapons.

The Super Bowl hero, who caught the game-winning catch in the Giants' win over the Patriots in January, admitted to the guards that he was carrying a gun.

He then allegedly moved over to a secluded area away from the club's velvet rope with a guard and started taking the gun out.

It's not clear exactly what happened next, but Burress apparently started trying to unload the bullets from the gun and bobbled it. A shot went off accidentally, ripping through his leg.

At first, security tried to call an ambulance, but Burress refused. He took himself to Cornell Medical Center, where he was treated and released at 2 p.m. today.

Newsday reported Burress has a concealed weapon permit from the state of Florida that expired in May 2008. It is unclear if the permit was renewed; such a license can be renewed up to six months beyond the expiration date in accordance with section 790.06(11)(a) of Florida Statutes.

However, the states of New York and New Jersey do not recognize permits from Florida, so Burress could be charged in the incident.

The NFL also is likely to investigate whether Burress violated its Personal Conduct Policy, which might lead to a suspension.

"We are aware of the fact that Plaxico was involved in an apparent accidental shooting last night," the Giants said in a written statement.

"We have been in contact with Plaxico since shortly after the incident. Plaxico suffered a wound to his right thigh. Obviously, our primary concern is for Plaxico's health and well-being, and given the circumstances, we are relieved to say he was released from a New York City hospital."

The LQ nightclub has a troubled history. In 2005, bodyguards for rapper Ja Rule allegedly shot two men, one fatally, at the club. .

The Giants have discussed the matter with NFL security and are attempting to gather more details.

"This incident could become a matter for law enforcement officials, and because of that we have no comment on any of the details," the team said.

Plax just grazed himself

This is from Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports, who did a book with Burress in the off-season:

New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress appears to have avoided serious injury after his leg was grazed by a bullet in an accidental shooting Friday night, and two sources say he should be able to return to the field this season.

“From everything I’ve heard, he was really lucky,” said a member of Burress’ family who had been told only general details about the event.
Burress had already been ruled out of the Giants’ game Sunday against the Washington Redskins because of a hamstring injury before the incident, in which he reportedly shot himself by accident.

“I don’t exactly know what happened with all of this, where he was or whether he had the gun or what,” another source said. “All I know is he’s supposed to be back in a couple of weeks.”
