LANDOVER, Md. (AP) -Plaxico Burress was among the inactives for the New York Giants on Sunday against the Washington Redskins, two days after the receiver accidentally shot himself in the right thigh.

Running back Brandon Jacobs was active after missing last week's game with a knee injury.
For the Redskins, defensive tackle Kedric Golston was inactive with a foot injury. Defensive end Andre Carter, who also has a foot injury, was active.
