By placing Plaxico Burress on the non-football injury list, they can avoid paying him the $823,529 remaining on his $3.5-million salary for this season. Burress will not be eligible to return to the Giants until next season, by which time he could be serving a prison sentence for his violations of New York gun laws. Even without a conviction there, several Giants officials have speculated in recent days that Burress' career with the Giants most likely is over. The Giants expect to fill Burress' roster spot today. They'll likely promote wide receiver Taye Biddle from the practice squad. Domenik Hixon has taken Burress' starting job in the games Burress has missed this season due to injury or suspension. -- Newsday
