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.
ESPN's Jenna Laine reports that Buccaneers edge star Jason Pierre-Paul has gained doctor clearance to begin rehabbing his neck injury.

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.
