Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh placed Burress on the injured reserve list, likely ending his season. The Steelers made the move Tuesday, a day after Burress turned 36.

Burress had surgery Monday morning to repair a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder. Burress joined the NFL with Pittsburgh in 2000. He has caught 553 passes for 8,499 yards and 64 touchdowns in the regular season with the Steelers, Giants and Jets. He played three games for Pittsburgh last season.

Burress will have surgery on Monday to repair an injury in his right shoulder and is out indefinitely.

Coach Mike Tomlin called the damage to Burress' shoulder "significant" but declined to specify the exact nature of the injury. ESPN and NFL.com reported Burress has a torn rotator cuff.

The Steelers re-signed Burress on Tuesday.

Burress should provide depth with the Steelers losing Mike Wallace in free agency, but he struggled to get onto the field after returning to the Steelers last November.
