Pierre-Paul had a strong season in 2017 with 8.5 sacks and 68 total tackles, 48 of which were solo. He also knocked down five passes and forced two fumbles.
While the sack total was modest, Pierre-Paul is one of the best tackling defensive ends in the league, and he played all 16 games for the first time since 2014.
Pierre-Paul (finger/back) is listed as active Sunday against the Redskins.
Playing with a cast on his broken finger Week 16, he tallied a sack among four tackles while missing just three of 69 defensive snaps. He was unable to practice in preparation for the season finale, seemingly the result of a more-recent issue with his back. The maintenance of Pierre-Paul's health will allow him to take the field, but it stands to wonder how effective he'll be.
Pierre-Paul (finger/back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.
Pierre-Paul was able to wear a club in Week 16 and play through his finger injury, but the back ailment is a new arrival. He has been held out of practice this week because of it, and his status likely won't be released until 11:30 EST on Sunday. The eighth-year pro has compiled 66 tackles, 7.5 sacks and four pass breakups through 15 games this season.
Pierre-Paul notched four solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's 23-0 loss in Arizona.
The sack was his first in four weeks. While it's definitely hard to blame him given the Giants' abysmal season and his broken finger, he has a favorable Week 17 matchup against Washington, whose offensive line allowed him to sack Kirk Cousins twice in Week 12.
Pierre-Paul (finger) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Pierre-Paul is playing with a broken finger, so it's fair to question whether his effectiveness will be compromised. While playing through the injury the past two weeks, he averaged four tackles per game but wasn't able to get to the quarterback once. Entering the first of those two games, Pierre-Paul had been averaging 4.5 tackles with 6.5 sacks to his name across 12 appearances.
