BEST OF MAXIM
New York Jets receiver Plaxico Burress will be active for Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills.Burress has been hampered by a back injury and was limited in practice Thursday and Friday. He leads the Jets with five touchdowns, catching 18 passes for 243 yards receiving in his first season in the NFL since being released from a two-year prison term on weapons charges this fall.
It wasn’t David Tyree’s Super Bowl helmet catch, but tight end Jake Ballard’s overhead grab between two defenders on third-and-10 on the Giants’ final drive was as clutch as you will see in a regular-season game. And Ballard didn’t stop there, hauling in a 1-yard...

Leading into yesterday’s game Rod Boone of Newsday reports that Plaxico had some serious back issues to the point he thought he might not be able to play at all. Even so, by game time he felt better and played much of the game, helping the Jets win with his goal-line set up play for LaDainian.

Yesterday, New England had them on the ropes in protecting their confines, where they had not lost a game since the 2008 season....
Jets receiver Plaxico Burress was a surprise addition to the injury report. Due to low back stiffness, Burress is questionable. FOX’s Jay Glazer says Burress will play against the Bills, but that he’ll be limited to third-down and red-zone duties early. If his back loosens up, he’ll play more.
