Former New York Giants receiver Plaxico Burress started his two-year sentence for carrying an illiegal handgun in a Manhattan nightclub. The NFL star accidentally shot himself in the leg after storing the weapon in the elastic band of his sweatpants.
Burress is seen sporting a bald head and chin after being shaved clean at the Ulster Correctional Facility upstate, where he arrived Wednesday.
He looks grim and sad without his usual jewelry and expensive clothes -- dressed only in a drab green prison top and a white tee shirt -- as he glares directly at the camera.
The 32-year-old also seems to come in just above 78" or 6-foot-6, which is taller than his official NFL height of 6-foot-5.
Burress was sentenced to two years in jail on Tuesday after reaching a plea bargain deal with prosecutors following the November incident where he shot himself in the leg while fumbling a gun in a Manhattan nightclub.
