The weapons possession case against former New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress has been adjourned until September. Burress made a brief appearance in court Monday. The judge adjourned the case until Sept. 23.

The 31-year-old, 6-foot-5 Burress shot himself in the thigh with an unlicensed gun Nov. 29 while in a Manhattan nightclub. He was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and faces up to 3½ years in prison.

Burress has pleaded not guilty and is free on $100,000 bail.

Burress caught the game-winning touchdown for the Giants in the 2008 Super Bowl. The team released him April 3.
