After a week in which injury updates seemed all too common, there is finally some good news out of Giants camp.
The New York Giants announced on Monday that they have taken Jason Pierre-Paul off the physically unable to perform list, and he is cleared to resume practice with the team.
Pierre-Paul, who is the most explosive player on the giants defense, has been sidelined since undergoing back surgery on June 4th.
While speaking with the media on Monday Pierre-Paul said that despite being pain free, he won’t participate in the Giants final preseason game.
“I’m not going to rush it. A back injury is a serious thing.”
Although JPP’s status for week one against the Dallas Cowboys is still up in the air, this is great news for a Giants team that has lost three starters in the last week due to injury. If Pierre-Paul can get back on the field for week one, it will go a long way in plugging some of the holes, that seem to be gaping at the moment, in this Giants defense.
