Plaxico Burress isn’t the only New York Giant in trouble. The New York Daily News reported that former Redskins linebacker Antonio Pierce took the gun with which Burress accidentally shot himself on Friday night in Manhattan. Pierce fled the scene with the gun and reportedly told police, through his attorneys, that he wouldn’t turn it or himself in unless he was allowed to play in today’s game. As of now, Pierce is set to start, but he’s obviously facing an obstruction of justice charge.
