Jason Pierre-Paul (back) said he's now "110 percent."
"I'm awesome," Pierre-Paul said. It's music to the ears of the Giants after their defense crumbled with JPP a shell of himself last season. A return to All-Pro 2011 form is necessary if this unit is going to return to respectability. Jul 24 - 12:03 PM

Jason Pierre-Paul said his back still isn't quite 100 percent.

"I still feel a little something," Pierre-Paul said, "but at the end of the day, it's nothing that is going to bother me while I'm playing. Now, I'm flying to the ball." It sounds like JPP is feeling far better than he did last year, when he was a shell of himself en route to two sacks in 11 games. The Giants' defense hinges on a return to 2011 form from their contract-year pass-rusher.

Giants RE Jason Pierre-Paul reported to OTAs at 275 pounds.

He's gained five since the start of the offseason program, but this is right around where the Giants want "JPP." Conditioning has been an issue for Pierre-Paul in the past. The G-Men need a resurgence from the 25-year-old pass rusher, who would also certainly like one in the final season of his rookie contract.

Jason Pierre-Paul reported to the Giants offseason program at 270 pounds.

Pierre-Paul played at 285 last year. He's still rehabbing back and shoulder injuries but said he's "very" healthy and plans to "play the game like I'm 21 again." JPP avoided offseason surgery and should be 100 percent for minicamp and training camp. He has just 8.5 sacks the past two seasons. Entering the final year of his contract, we expect a major bounce-back from the 25-year-old.
Apr 22 - 12:41 PM

Jason Pierre-Paul blames injuries for his sharp decline in play last season.

Pierre-Paul tore through the league for 16.5 sacks and 17 quarterback hits in 2011. In 27 games since then, he has totaled 8.5 sacks and 10 quarterback hits while battling back and shoulder injuries. The good news for the pass-rush needy Giants is that JPP should be 100 percent healthy for camp and will be highly motivated as he enters a contract year. We're expecting a major bounce-back campaign.
Mar 31 - 12:16 PM

Giants RE Jason Pierre-Paul doesn't need shoulder surgery.

"Hopefully he’s going to return to feeling the way he has in past," coach Tom Coughlin said Friday. JPP estimated late last month that he was "about 90 percent healthy." With Justin Tuck possibly walking in free agency, the G-Men badly need Pierre-Paul to shake his two-year slump in 2014.
Feb 21 - 4:21 PM

Giants RE Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) is not expected to need surgery.

This comes as good news to a Giants organization that feared Pierre-Paul may need to go under the knife this offseason. JPP suffered through an injury-plagued 2013, but estimates he's "about 90 percent healthy." The talented end is only 25, and a prime candidate for a bounce-back season.
Jan 30 - 8:51 PM

Jason Pierre-Paul will find out by the end of January if he needs shoulder surgery.

Pierre-Paul was a shell of himself in 2013 as he struggled to recover from back surgery and then battled a shoulder issue. He ended up with a paltry two sacks and 27 tackles while missing five games. Getting JPP's health right is obviously crucial to a potential bounce-back year for the G-Men.
Jan 1 - 9:40 AM

Giants RE Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 17.

His lost season ends with four straight missed games. After offseason back surgery, Pierre-Paul was a shell of his old self throughout 2013, managing two sacks among 11 appearances, with six starts. JPP's sack total has now dropped in consecutive years following his mammoth, 16.5 campaign in 2011. Still only 25, Pierre-Paul will be an excellent rebound candidate in 2014.

Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 16.

Upgrade Matthew Stafford. JPP may not play again this season.
Fri, Dec 20, 2013 01:50:00 PM

Jason Pierre-Paul may need offseason shoulder surgery.

Pierre-Paul wants to avoid surgery at all costs after he underwent a back operation last offseason. He says surgery can be avoided as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks. A setback could occur if he plays in either of the final two games, so we'd expect JPP to be a spectator for the remainder of 2013.
Wed, Dec 18, 2013 05:30:00 PM

Giants declared DE Jason Pierre-Paul, CB Corey Webster, S Cooper Taylor, QB Ryan Nassib, TE Adrien Robinson, LB Allen Bradford and OG Stephen Goodin.

JPP is week to week. Otherwise, it's a quiet list for the G-Men as they play out the string of a lost season.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 11:49:00 AM

Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 15.

This will be Pierre-Paul's third consecutive game missed. The Giants have taken steps back both in run and pass defense with JPP on the shelf.
Fri, Dec 13, 2013 01:12:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports doctors have recommended to Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) that he not play again this season.

Pierre-Paul has missed the past two games and is in serious doubt for Week 15. He continues to say that he's not shutting it down for the remainder of the season, but he can't even do a push-up right now because the shoulder is so weak. It's been a lost season for JPP. He has just two sacks. Mathias Kiwanuka and Damontre Moore will continue to rotate opposite LE Justin Tuck.
Fri, Dec 13, 2013 10:24:00 AM

Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) is expected to miss Week 15 versus Seattle.

Pierre-Paul hasn't played since Week 12 and hasn't practiced at all this week. He can't even do a push-up right now but still says he has no plans of shutting it down for the rest of the season. JPP has just two sacks in 2013. Mathias Kiwanuka and rookie Damontre Moore will continue to fill in.
