Jason Pierre-Paul on track to play against Bucs

Jason Pierre-Paul

Jason Pierre-Paul could be making his return to live game action for the New York Giants much sooner than expected.

Pierre-Paul has been practicing with the team since he signed his new one-year deal last week, and Giants coach Tom Coughlin said the plan was to “push the envelope” with the 27-year-old defensive end as he continues to get into game shape. On Wednesday, Coughlin once again hinted that JPP could play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday.

While the recent photo we saw of Pierre-Paul’s hand will probably give you nightmares, he has been adamant about proving the fireworks mishap will not derail his career. The Giants originally hoped JPP would be back for Week 10 at the earliest or after the team’s Week 11 bye at the latest. If he’s able to play against the Bucs, that would be a great sign.
