Plaxico Burress Suspended, Imprisoned for Shooting Himself

The New York Giants suspended Plaxico Burress for the remaining four games of the 2008 NFL season after the star wide receiver accidentally shot himself in a New York City nightclub. And that was the more lenient punishment. Burress wound up doing nearly two years on gun charges before returning to the NFL in 2011. (Photo: Chris Gardner/Getty Images)
