Plaxico Burress carted off with arm injury

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Plaxico Burress was carted off the field with an apparent arm injury today, according to reports.

Burress had his arm in a sling, according to the Washington Observer-Reporter.

Burress, 36, is trying to regain his old form, but this injury is a setback.

The extent and nature of the injury are unclear at this point, but it's a negative development for Burress that he needed this much medical attention right away.
