Plaxico Burress to have surgery
The Steelers said via their Twitter account that Burress suffered a significant shoulder injury in Thursday's practice.
A source familiar with the injury told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that Burress has a torn rotator cuff, an injury that could end his season.
Burress, who will turn 36 next week, had three receptions in four games with the Steelers last season.
Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
