The receiver is coming off one of the best games of his career, a three-touchdown performance in a Week 7 win over the San Diego Chargers.
Burress, added to the injury report Thursday, still has soreness -- something he has experienced at times throughout the season, though he hadn't previously been limited. He had been listed as questionable on New York's injury report.
The Jets will be without run-stuffer Mike DeVito, who will not play because of a knee injury. The Jets tweeted Sunday morning that Marcus Dixon will start for DeVito and that the team will employ a five-man defensive line rotation that also will include Martin Tevaseu. Other notable inactives for the Jets are tight end Shawn Nelson, a former Bill who was signed this week; defensive back Isaiah Trufant and rookie defensive tackle Kenrick Ellis.
