The Jets signing of Plaxico Burress hasn’t worked out so well for Rex Ryan’s squad.

It’s been more than a week since Burress twisted his ankle, and he hardly has been heard from since (he practiced once again, only to hurt his ankle once again). For a team which took a major talent loss when it didn’t re-sign Braylon Edwards and opted instead for Burress and Derrick Mason at the WR position, this is not a good sign.

But now a spot of good news as the word coming from Rapid Reporter Lisa Zimmerman is that the MRI taken on Burress’ ankle Friday was negative and that Burress said it simply is a “classic sprain.” It also, he said, is not the same kind of ankle injury he suffered with the Giants, (with that injury, he completely tore his tendon).

Although Burress lobbied Ryan to let him play in Monday’s preseason opener vs. the Texans, Ryan said no. The team is worried that his ankle might swell on its airline flight to Houston.

In fact, Burress won’t return to practice until next Wednesday.

“I probably never handled it the best way," Ryan said, via the New York Daily News. "I think we were all anxious to see him out there. If we had to play a (regular-season) game, he would definitely play... As bad as we all want to see him, we'll just have to wait another week.

"I'm not as concerned right now because he's going through the walk-through stuff; he's doing the mental things. If he was struggling mentally, I would definitely be concerned. I'm not concerned right now. If it goes on and I'll have to answer those questions next week, the week after, whatever... I don't think we're going to have those issues."

As for the treatment Burress must undergo, Burress broke it down for ESPN’s Jane McManus: "We're just going to treat it, treat it, we gonna ice it, treat it, treat it and ice it and treat it."
