Source: Burress may miss season

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Plaxico Burress has a torn rotator cuff, which could end his season, a source familiar with the injury told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Burress was hurt Thursday in practice when he landed awkwardly on his right arm while trying to make a catch over defensive backs Da'Mon Cromartie-Smith and Ryan Steed, according to multiple reports. Burress was in the mix to be the Steelers' fourth or fifth receiver.

Burress, who will turn 36 next week, had three receptions in four games with the Steelers last season.

In 11 NFL seasons with the Steelers, New York Giants and New York Jets, Burress has 553 receptions for 8,499 yards and 64 touchdowns.
