Giants' Pierce Finishes Testimony in Plaxico Gun Case

Pierce didn't comment on today's testimony

New York Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce has finished two days of testimony before before the grand jury investigating a gun charge against former teammate Plaxico Burress.

Pierce emerged from a Manhattan courthouse after about two hours of testimony on Friday. He also appeared before the grand jury on Thursday. Burress testified earlier this week.

Pierce didn't comment. His lawyer, Michael Bachner, says that Pierce did what anyone would do in a situation when he felt his teammate's life was in jeopardy.

Pierce was with Burress at a Manhattan nightclub last November when the wide receiver shot himself in the leg. Authorities say Pierce drove Burress to the hospital and took the gun to Burress' home in Totowa, N.J.

Giants co-owner John Mara says any charges against Pierce would be "unwarranted."
