Burress misses Jets practice again
New York Jets wide receiver Plaxico Burress missed a second straight day of practice on Thursday with a stiff back, according to ESPNNewYork.com.
According to the report, there was concern last week that the 34-year-old receiver might not be able to go last week against Buffalo, even though he wound up playing in the Jets' 27-11 victory.
With the New England Patriots looming, the Jets need Burress this Sunday in a key AFC East showdown.
Safety Brodney Pool (knee) and kick returner Joe McKnight (toe) sat out Thursday as well.
