    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Super Bowl star Plaxico Burress was suspended for one game by the New York Giants on Wednesday for missing a workout earlier in the week. His agent insisted the receiver had an undisclosed family emergency and will appeal the ban to the NFL Players Association.

    Because the unbeaten Giants have a bye this weekend, Burress will miss the Oct. 5 game against Seattle if the suspension is upheld.

    The Giants refused to say why Burress was suspended, but agent Drew Rosenhaus claimed the nine-year veteran did not attend Monday's workout because of a family emergency that has now been resolved.

    The suspension took effect immediately, meaning Burress will not be allowed to return to team activities until the day after the Seahawks game. He will miss two paychecks, totaling $235,294.12 of his $2 million annual base salary.
    Ahhhhh....douchebag!

    On KFAN they also said that the team didn't hear from him until this morning, and calls placed to his agent and his home went unreturned on Monday and Tuesday.

    Sound familiar to anyone?

    I signed Amani Toomer to one of my FF teams an hour before this was announced... Some days, everything is just going your way.
