NEW YORK (AP) - New York City prosecutors say a grand jury has indicted former New York Giants Plaxico Burress on weapons charges.

The grand jury did not indict his former teammate, Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce.

Prosecutors say the indictment charges the 31-year-old Burress with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon and one count of
reckless endangerment.

The 31-year-old wide receiver shot himself in the thigh at a Manhattan nightclub in November. The gun was not licensed and no one initially called police to report the gunshot.

Burress and Pierce - who drove Burress to the hospital and took the gun to Burress' New Jersey home - both testified before the grand jury last week.

The New York Giants released Burress in April.
