Plaxico Burress Status Update: Jets WR Will Play Against Bills

Rich Eisen just said it on NFL Network, so it must be true: the New York Jets' wide receiver Plaxico Burress will play in Week 9 on the road against the Buffalo Bills. Burress had been struggling with a back injury all week, and was listed as questionable entering Sunday.

This is obviously huge for fantasy teams, as it hasn't been an easy week for wide receiver injuries. Despite complaints about his ineffectiveness, Burress has caught five touchdown passes in seven games for the Jets, good for fourth in the league. As with any sport, it takes weeks to shake off the rust that comes with a long (say, two-year) layoff, and Burress figures to only be a bigger factor as the season wears on.

For more information on Burress and his matchup, visit SB Nation's Jets blog, Gang Green Nation, and our Bills blog, Buffalo Rumblings. Keep it with this storystream for all your fantasy injury updates and tweet @SBNationFantasy.
