The ankle is not the only issue for Burress, who turned 31 on Tuesday. He refused to participate in team minicamp in June because the Giants refused to renegotiate his contract. He has three years left on a deal that will pay him $3.25 million this season.
Some had speculated that Burress was not going to practice until he got a new deal.
"There is no correlation between Plax's negotiations and practicing," Rosenhaus said Tuesday.
Giants general manager Jerry Reese said this week that the team wants to get Burress a new deal before the season starts.
After practice ended, Burress walked to the sideline, picked up his son and walked back to a group of receivers as they stretched. He left the field with his son in his arms.
