Burress pulled the hamstring in the Giants' win over Baltimore on Nov. 16. He then aggravated the injury in the opening series last Sunday against Arizona, which forced him to sit out the rest of the game.
Linebacker Jonathan Goff (hamstring) also will not play against the Redskins, while three players -- running backs Brandon Jacobs (knee) and Ahmad Bradshaw (neck) and defensive tackle Fred Robbins (shoulder) -- are listed as questionable. Coughlin said Jacobs was able to practice Friday, while Bradshaw and Robbins could not.
Meanwhile, Hixon and defensive ends Justin Tuck (lower leg) and Jerome McDougle (knee) all practiced fully Friday and are probable for Sunday's game.
