Steelers | Plaxico Burress unlikely to play

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Plaxico Burress is not expected to be active for the team's Week 14 game with WR Jerricho Cotchery (rib) returning from a rib injury. Burress said he would not be a distraction if he does not play. "Like I told the guys upstairs, I am willing to go out and fulfill whatever role is presented to me, and I stand by that," Burress said. "Whenever they put me in the game, I want to answer the call." Burress has yet to make a catch since joining the team. He's been targeted only two times and has played only 12 of 132 snaps.
