Giants | Jason Pierre-Paul wants to stick around

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 14:25:24 -0800

New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul (finger, hand) said he'd like to finish his career with the Giants after making a successful return from a freak fireworks accident this summer. Pierre-Paul will be a free agent at the end of this year, and his chances of returning are tied to how he plays in the final five games. The Giants have been pleased with his results since his return from injury. He's finally able to practice rushing from a three-point stance with his right hand on the ground. Pierre-Paul is also still wearing a bulky club on his right hand, and he said it's not easy to balance with. He expects to wear the club for the rest of the year.

Giants | Jason Pierre-Paul may ditch wrap

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 12:42:26 -0800

New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul (finger, hand) may not use the heavy club wrap that he wore on his hand in Week 9. Pierre-Paul played 46 defensive snaps in his season debut last week and is likely to see his workload increase in Week 10 as he works his way back from injury. He said his hand isn't hurting at all and didn't bother him last week, which is why he thinks he won't have to wear his wrap for much longer. Pierre-Paul said his recovery from a back injury in 2013 was much tougher.
