Who says a bye week needs to be boring? The Giants announced today that they have suspended Plaxico Burress for one game, meaning the star receiver will miss the game against Seattle on Oct. 3. Burress apparently missed a team meeting on Monday and then failed to return “several” phone calls. He met with Tom Coughlin and Jerry Reese this morning and was told he was suspended. Because the Giants have a bye week, Plaxico is actually missing two weeks with the team and is forfeiting around $235,000 in salary. While suspended, Burress won't be allowed to practice with the team. It seems like a harsh penalty for missing one meeting, but the Giants are clearly sending a message to Burress, who got a big contract extension before the season started, that he needs to live up to that deal on and off the field.
