Burress, who has been bothered by a problem with his right ankle that's not related to the one he had a year ago, has missed all 14 practices.
Burress, who caught the game-winning touchdown pass in the final minute of Super Bowl XLII, was examined by team doctors on Sunday.
The veteran receiver led the Giants in receptions while catching a career-best 12 touchdown passes. He refused to practice during a minicamp in June to protest the team's refusal to give him a new contact. He was fined $25,000.
Drew Rosenhaus, his agent, had contract talks with the Giants last week. Burress has three years left on a contract that will pay him $3.25 million this season.
Also on Sunday night, middle linebacker Antonio Pierce missed his first camp practice with a sore shoulder, adding to a long Giants injury list.
Receiver David Tyree (knee) and linebacker Gerris Wilkinson (knee), have yet to practice, while rookie receiver Mario Manningham (quad) and OT Shane Olivea (back) missed both practices Sunday.
