Plaxico sneaks into 11-on-11 drills, promptly gets kicked out

Jets receiver Plaxico Burress, who twisted an ankle several days ago working out with new teammate Santonio Holmes, isn’t ready to practice.  But he found a way to get at least one rep during 11-on-11 drills Sunday.

He jumped in without telling the coaches.

“I was trying to sneak in, but me being [6-foot-5] it didn’t work out too well,” Burress said, via Jane McManus of ESPNNewYork.com.

When coach Rex Ryan saw Burress, coach Rex Ryan told Burress to get out.

“He basically told me ‘Hey, it was a good start, we don’t want any setbacks,’” Burress said.  “If they wouldn’t have took me out, I would’ve kept on going. It was my first time out there in a couple years.  It just felt good to kind of get back in the groove but Rex shut me down.”

“I want to proceed really cautiously here,” Ryan said.  “I don’t want to do too much with him.  But he’s moving around good.”

Burress could practice Monday, and he could play next Monday when the Jets face the Texans in their mutual preseason opener.

    Rex is doing his best to make sure Plaxico’s feet stay healthy.

    Sounds like he’s gonna fit right in with the Jets.

    Can’t even sneak a loaded gun into an NYC nightclub either… Not the slick guy apparently.

    Plax violates his “parole” and gets sent back to the doghouse.

    Dumb move, he needs to stay off the field until everybody is sure he won’t aggravate the injury further. Gotta like the desire to get back out there, though. Sometimes these guys need to be protected from themselves.

    I do think Plaxico will be one of the more interesting stories this season, whether or not he’s able to get back to his old playing level. Everybody loves a comeback story.

    Plax needs to put his best foot forward if he’s going to impress Rex, who knows all about the agony of da feet.

    Sexy Rexy had a Toe truck on standby just incase of an setback .

    Plax is a moron.

  14. starfan79 says: Aug 8, 2011 7:23 AM

    Plax jumped right in with both both feet. Good for him, screw that one foot at a time thing.

    What the heck were all the coaches and trainers looking at when Burress “snuck” onto the field in the middle of team drills, when there’s usually a huddle and all before each play?

    Is this like that time they staged the fight?

    these foot jokes are really getting old.. cant you idiots come up with something a little more clever now?

  19. jenniferxxx says: Aug 8, 2011 8:51 AM

    Plax just screwed up and thought he was supposed to be out there. He’s dumb. Stop making it all brave and noble and stuff.

    Sorry, we will try our hardest to put our
    “best foot” forward in regards to refraining from the foot jokes.

    :o)

    Plax better stay on his toes and put one foot in front of the other if he wants this comeback to be a success. But then again, none of us can imagine what it’s like to be in his shoes. Except maybe Rex.

    “If they wouldn’t have took me out…”

    Ebonics at it’s finest!

    Unfortunately, they can’t. Not getting past the fourth grade and all that.
