Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

PITTSBURGH -- New York Giants backup receiver Domenik Hixon will start in place of Plaxico Burress in Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The official ruling just came down as the inactives for both teams were released.

Burress missed treatment for a neck injury and is facing discipline yet again by the Giants.

For Pittsburgh, key inactives include receiver Santonio Holmes (discipline) and tailback Willie Parker (knee).
