More Arrests Expected in Plaxico Burress Case

Police, Prosecutors Weighing Charges Against Doctor and Teammate in Possible Cover-up.

Police and prosecutors are weighing whether to bring charges against the doctor who treated New York Giant Plaxico Burress for a gunshot wound, as well as one of the player's teammates, for their role in the "universe of silence" that police say they faced when they tried to investigate the athlete's accidental shooting of himself with a .40 Cal. Glock semi-automatic pistol, ABC News has learned from two separate sources involved in the investigation.

According to ABC News sources, a female doctor with privileges to practice at New York-Cornell Hospital -- but not on staff in the Emergency Room -- treated Burress for the thigh wound and could face charges for failing to report the treatment of a gunshot wound, as required by law and hospital policy. Burress registered at the hospital under the alias Harris Smith.
