Pierre-Paul is currently slated to hit free agency next month, but in releasing wide receiver Victor Cruz and running back Rashad Jennings on Monday, the Giants freed salary-cap room to ensure they're equipped to meet JPP's desires and keep him off the open market. With that end in mind, the team is anticipated to escalate talks with Pierre-Paul in the coming days and weeks, with a $12 million-per-year contract reportedly a realistic figure for striking a deal. After playing just eight games in 2015 following a notorious fireworks accident, Pierre-Paul registered 53 tackles and seven sacks while defending eight passes in 12 appearances this past season.
Pierre-Paul (groin) was ruled out for Sunday's wild-card playoff game against the Packers.
Pierre-Paul missed each of the past four games after going under the knife to repair a sports hernia in early December. Kerry Wynn will continue to start in his absence.
His initial timetable after groin surgery put his return in the next couple weeks, so if all goes well he could be back in the divisional round or the NFC championship game should the Giants make it that far. He hasn't yet been ruled out for this week's game, but he hasn't practiced yet and would be a long shot to play.
Pierre-Paul (sports hernia) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Redskins.
Pierre-Paul was initially ruled out for six weeks after undergoing surgery to repair his sports hernia four weeks ago. He'll need a good week of recovery in order to have a chance at playing in the Giants' wildcard playoff game next week. Kerry Wynn will continue to start at defensive end opposite Olivier Vernon while Pierre-Paul is out.
Pierre-Paul will miss at least six weeks after surgery to repair a hernia, Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports.
Pierre-Paul sustained the injury in Sunday's loss at Pittsburgh and didn't return. With the defensive end requiring surgery, he'll miss the rest of the season and appears unlikely to return until the NFC Championship Game, should the Giants advance that far. Pierre-Paul had 5.5 sacks in his last three games, so this is a major loss for the Giants defense.
