Pierre-Paul totaled five tackles (three solo), including two sacks, during the Buccaneers' 31-26 win over the Packers in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.
The veteran edge rusher came through at a critical time, with his pair of takedowns on Aaron Rodgers part of a five-sack day for the Buccaneers defense. Pierre-Paul snapped a five-game sack-less streak with Sunday's haul, and his veteran savvy and pass-rush acumen should both be indispensable to Tampa Bay's attempts to slow down the high-powered Chiefs during Super Bowl LV on Sunday, Feb. 7.

It still seems likely that the Pierre-Paul will be all clear for Sunday's game against the Falcons, but expect his practice status the rest of the week to paint a clearer picture of his chances to suit up. Anthony Nelson would be in line for the start at outside linebacker in Week 15 should JPP miss action.
Pierre-Paul (knee) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Vikings, Adam Caplan of Sirius XM Radio reports.
Pierre-Paul has been cleared to play despite failing to practice Friday following a pair of limited sessions.

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.

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.

If Pierre-Paul suffers a setback leading up to the game, Anthony Nelson would be in line to draw the start at outside linebacker.
