Plaxico Burress is expected to fine after tweaking his lower back in practice on Tuesday. The Jets’ wide receiver will face his former team on Saturday when Gang Green plays the Giants at MetLife Stadium.

“He went up for a ball yesterday,” Rex Ryan said after morning walk-through. “He’s seems to be doing fine right now. If we’re playing a real game, he’s going to play. I think he’ll play anyway. So we’ll see. We will reevaluate it after individual (drills) and we’ll limit him (in team drills this afternoon) if he’s doing well.”

“If he can’t play, we’ll definitely let somebody else tell him that,” Ryan cracked.

Burress told reporters this morning that he’s a little sore, but he’ll be ready to go for the game.

“It’s football,” Burress said. “It’s not like it’s badminton.”
