The New York Giants waited until the very end of the day to announce that Plaxico Burress will in fact be placed on the "non-football injury list." This is effectively a suspension that removes him from the Giants roster for the remainder of the regular season and the playoffs, and (unlike injured reserve) allows the Giants to not pay him, because his injury did not happen on the field (i.e., he was acting like an idiot.)

Also, Sal Paolantonio is reporting on SportsCenter that Antonio Pierce is "not out of the woods" when it comes to the NYPD and any possible legal ramifications from his involvement in this mess. There will be plenty more on this tomorrow, but it looks like Plaxico Burress has played his last game for the New York Giants—and maybe his last NFL game for a long, long time.
