What’s wrong with Plax?

Reports indicate that Plaxico Burress’ left knee is swollen and sore, and he has missed two straight practices (Wednesday and yesterday).

Of course, Plax has been dealing with right ankle problems all season long that has caused him to miss the majority of practices, so on the surface the fact he missed a couple of practices is not that big a deal.

However, with his knee bothering him, it could very welll have an effect on the possibility of Eli Manning throwing the ball deep to him early on in the game to put some thoughts in the Pats’ minds as well as opening up some underneath passing routes.

We’ll keep an eye on what’s happening with Plax, but hopefully it’s not too serious.
