Buccaneers HC Bruce Arians said in his Friday press conference that edge Jason Pierre-Paul could be activated for Sunday's game against the Titans. Pierre-Paul returned to practice this week for the 1st time since suffering a neck injury in an offseason car accident. Arians said doctors still need to clear JPP for game action but that he had a good week of practice. We wouldn't use an active Pierre-Paul in his 1st game back, but he's worth stashing in deeper IDP leagues.
ESPN's Jenna Laine reports that Buccaneers edge star Jason Pierre-Paul has gained doctor clearance to begin rehabbing his neck injury. That doesn't necessarily mean a return to the field is near, though. "There is no timetable for the recovery," Laine writes. "They absolutely will not rush this." Expect JPP to not be available for your IDP league this season. He's still worth holding in dynasty formats, though. And reports around the time of his car accident indicated playing late in 2019 might be within reach.
Buccaneers DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee, shoulder) is active for today's game against the Falcons after arriving questionable. DE Carl Nassib is inactive, as expected. A shoulder injury rendered him doubtful.
Buccaneers DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. He has played through multiple questionable tags this season, and we'd bet on him playing in the finale. DE Carl Nassib, on the other hand, is doubtful for Sunday because of a shoulder injury.
The Buccaneers have ruled S Justin Evans (toe) out for Sunday's game against the Saints. DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee) is questionable. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning to a limited Friday workout. That marked a downgrade from his participation level last week with the same injury. We'll check JPP's status Sunday morning. The issue plus the poor sack matchup with New Orleans make him much more of a "sit" candidate than usual.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Buccaneers consider DE Jason Pierre-Paul's knee injury to be minor. That suggests JPP should be able to play through his "questionable" tag against the Eagles today. We'll confirm his status when early-game inactives come out, but plan to use Pierre-Paul as you normally would in IDP leagues.
Buccaneers DE Jason Pierre-Paul is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles with a knee injury. He put in limited practices Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. We'll see about JPP's status Sunday morning.
Buccaneers DE Jason Pierre-Paul missed practice Wednesday and had a brace on his right knee. The specific injury? "My knee is jacked up. Banged up," Pierre-Paul told Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. "Ask me if I can play Sunday, I don't know." Guess we'll see how the jacked-up knee progresses. Losing JPP would hurt the already boom/bust outlook for the Bucs team D, but you'd be buying the turnover upside on Eagles QB Nick Foles more than the Bucs' sack potential.
Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul is active for today's game against Washington. He entered the day questionable with finger and back issues. Pierre-Paul played through the finger injury last week, so the back problem seems like the bigger question mark. That injury adds risk, so weigh JPP against your other IDP options.
Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, listed with finger and back injuries. He played through the finger issue in Week 16 but missed practice all this week while dealing with the back problem. We'll update his status Sunday morning.
Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul missed practice Wednesday with knee and shoulder injuries. According to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano, HC Ben McAdoo said the shoulder issue arose over the past 2 days and that they must see how JPP responds to treatment before knowing his status for Week 5. The knee didn't show up on the injury report for any previous weeks but seems like the lesser issue here. We'll keep an eye out for updates. The Giants' defense has already seen DE Olivier Vernon leave 2 straight games with an ankle injury that kept him out of Wednesday's workout.
ESPN reports that the Giants will use their franchise tag on DE Jason Pierre-Paul. It's not a surprising move given JPP's continued studly performance before injury ended his 2016 prematurely. Durability has long been his primary issue, but Pierre-Paul returned to dominance last season even with his fireworks-altered hand. He also just turned 28 in January. JPP has reportedly said he won't play on a 1-year deal. The tag gives the 2 sides until July 15 to reach a longer-term agreement. Barring a summer holdout, you should expect Pierre-Paul to rank among our top 5 IDP linemen come preseason
Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul visited sports hernia specialist Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia on Tuesday, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Pierre-Paul reportedly spoke optimistically after Sunday's game about the groin injury that ended his day early, so he might just be seeking confirmation that the issue is OK to play through. We'll certainly be watching for updates. Losing JPP for any more time would deal a big blow to IDP lineups and the Giants' team D.
Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul left Sunday's game at Pittsburgh early with a groin injury. We'll see about his status this week. Kerry Wynn would likely see the biggest playing-time boost if JPP sits.
Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul missed practice Wednesday with a groin injury. There's no indication yet how serious the issue might be, so we'll keep an eye on his participation throughout the week.
Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Saints. The injury obviously adds risk, but JPP will be worth playing as you normally would in most IDP formats. There's significant upside in a pass-heavy New Orleans offense.
Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul is questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints because of a shoulder injury. JPP said Thursday that he'd be ready to play, according to ESPN.com. But HC Ben McAdoo said that Pierre-Paul would have sat out had the team practiced Friday. We'll have to watch his active status Sunday morning. JPP belongs in IDP lineups if he's active, though. Fellow DE Olivier Vernon is also dealing with a minor wrist injury but didn't even appear on the week's final injury report.
The Giants on Saturday activated DE Jason Pierre-Paul and expect him to play Sunday against the Buccaneers. We'll see just how big a role he starts out with and how much the altered hand bothers him. To make room on the roster, the Giants placed MLB Jon Beason on IR with an ankle injury. That marks his 2nd straight season finished on IR and the 3rd time in the past 4 years that he has played 5 games or fewer. Jasper Brinkley and Uani' Unga figure to each spend time in the middle the rest of the way.
ESPN's Dan Graziano reported Saturday that some in the Giants organization don't believe DE Jason Pierre-Paul be able to play at all in 2015 because of the extent of the injuries to his right hand. Pro Football Talk reported Sunday morning, however, that JPP believes he'll be able to return in 5-6 weeks. Even that doesn't seem too optimistic a timetable for injuries from a July 4 incident. At this point, we're not rostering Pierre-Paul in anything but dynasty and the deepest of IDP leagues. His absence means opportunity for players such as Damontre Moore, Kerry Wynn, rookie Owa Odighizuwa and even DT/DE Cullen Jenkins.
