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.

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.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Buccaneers DE Jason Pierre-Paul suffered a neck fracture in last week's single-car accident that might cost him the 2019 season. Pierre-Paul will reportedly get further opinions this week, but he's expected to need surgery. The hope is that "a portion of this season can be saved." With JPP out, Tampa Bay would enter the year thin at DE. The Bucs might have suddenly turned into the top suitor for free-agent DE Ezekiel Ansah.

Buccaneers DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee) is active for today's game against the Saints. He put in just a limited practice Friday and carries some extra risk into an already low-floor matchup. Consider other options for your IDP lineup today.

Buccaneers DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee) is active for today's game against the Eagles. He began the practice week sidelined but returned to practice Thursday and Friday. He appears fine for normal IDP use.
