ESPN: The NFL Players Association filed a grievance on Tuesday
challenging the suspension and fine given to Plaxico Burress by
the Giants after the receiver accidentally shot himself in a
nightclub more than a week ago. The union said that the team
violated the collective bargaining agreement last week when it
placed Burress on the reserve-non-football injury list, suspended
him for the final four games of the regular season and fined him
an additional week's salary for conduct detrimental to the team.
Placing Burress on the non-football injury list will also keep him
out of the playoffs. The Giants (11-2) won the NFC East title on
Sunday.
