NFL Reportedly Investigating Burress
The New York Daily News reported today that the NFL is investigating two domestic incidents during the summer in which the wife of New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress reportedly had temporary restraining orders issued against him, although both were dismissed in state court.
The incidents and Burress's failure to report them to the league may have put him in violation of the NFL's personal conduct policy, the Daily News reported.
Richard Berthelsen, the interim executive director of the NFL Players Association, told New York-area reporters during a visit to Giants Stadium on Monday that he was not aware of any discussion of disciplinary action against Burress for violating the conduct policy, however.
The players' union and the league have agreed to a settlement of Burress's dispute with the Giants, who announced last week they were suspending the wide receiver for one game until Oct. 6 for violating a team rule. Burress had an unexcused absence from the team eight days ago. Under the terms of the settlement, Burress will miss Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks but will have his amount of lost pay reduced from $235,294 to $117,647.
