UPDATED (2:36 p.m.)...
According to reports, New York Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce testified before a grand jury Thursday in Manhattan.
Pierce's testimony is to continue Friday, his attorney, Michael Bachner, told reporters outside the courthouse.
It's the same grand jury before which Pierce's former Giants teammate, Plaxico Burress, testified Wednesday in his weapon possession case.
The grand jury is considering indicting Burress on charges stemming from the incident last year in which he accidentally shot himself in the leg at a New York nightclub.
Pierce also reportedly faces a potential charge. He accompanied Burress to the nightclub and allegedly was in possession of the gun after the shooting.
Pierce and the Giants are scheduled to report to training camp Sunday in Albany, N.Y. Giants co-owner John Mara strongly defended Pierce in a written statement issued this week, calling any potential charge against Pierce unwarranted.
Burress is a free agent after being released by the Giants.
Both players reportedly face prospective disciplinary action by the NFL under its personal conduct policy.
