Pierre-Paul (knee) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Pierre-Paul continues to be limited in practice and occasionally sits out entirely, but he's played in every game this season. The veteran typically plays around 90 percent of the snaps on defense. He's produced 44 tackles, 7.5 sacks, four pass breakups, three forced fumbles and two interceptions. He does it all for the Buccaneers, providing an appealing floor for fantasy managers.
Pierre-Paul (knee) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site reports. The 31-year-old has been on the injury report all season as he manages the knee issue, so seeing him limited to begin the week is business as usual. Pierre-Paul has yet to receive an injury designation this season, and there's no reason to suspect that will change for Week 12.
Pierre-Paul recorded six tackles (four solo), an interception and an additional defensed pass in the Buccaneers' 27-24 loss to the Rams on Monday night. The veteran edge rusher wreaked havoc on Jared Goff early in the second quarter, picking off a pass intended for Darrell Henderson in the left flat and returning it 15 yards to the Rams' 22-yard line. While the Buccaneers could only parlay the excellent field position into a field goal, the pick was Pierre-Paul's latest impact play in a season that's now seen him record 7.5 sacks, two total interceptions, three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He'll look to help the Tampa Bay defense meet the formidable challenge of Patrick Mahomes and his arsenal of weapons in a Week 12 interconference battle against the Chiefs.
Pierre-Paul (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Monday's game versus the Rams. The veteran defensive end continues to manage the knee issue by limiting his practice reps each week, but it has yet to impact his availability for gamedays. Pierre-Paul has 38 tackles, 7.5 sacks one interception and three forced fumbles while playing at least 78 percent of defensive snaps in every game this season.
Pierre-Paul (knee) was a limited participant during Thursday's practice. Pierre-Paul has dealt with the knee injury all season but has yet to miss any game action, so it's not time to panic for his status in Monday's game against the Rams. The veteran was strong in last week's win over the Panthers, racking up three tackles, a sack and an interception. If Pierre-Paul suffers a setback leading up to the game, Anthony Nelson would be in line to draw the start at outside linebacker.
