ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -Receiver Plaxico Burress did some light running Sunday night for the first time since the New York Giants opened training camp at the University at Albany more than a week ago.
Burress, who has missed all 14 practices, has been bothered by a problem with his right ankle that's not related to the one he had a year ago.
Burress, who caught the game-winning touchdown pass in the final minute of the Super Bowl, was examined by team doctors on Sunday.
The veteran receiver led the Giants in receptions while catching a career-best 12 touchdown passes. He refused to practice during a minicamp in June to protest the team's refusal to give him a new contact. He was fined $25,000.
Drew Rosenhaus, his agent, had contract talks with the Giants last week. Burress has three years left on a deal that will pay him $3.25 million this season.
