Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Signs extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Paul (knee) is signing a two-year contract extension through 2023, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

This may be for cap purposes above all else, but it at least confirms he'll be back with the Bucs for 2021, teaming up with Shaquil Barrett to terrorize QBs off the edge. Pierre-Paul mentioned in February that he planned to have knee surgery, though he didn't make it sound like anything serious. Despite battling a knee injury throughout much of the season, Pierre-Paul started each of Tampa's 20 games, recording 9.5 sacks in the regular season and two more in the playoffs.

Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Getting another surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Paul said Wednesday that he will undergo a procedure on his knee, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 32-year-old pass rusher played at least 78 percent of defensive snaps in each of the Bucs' 20 games this past season, despite battling a knee injury that limited his practice reps throughout the year. Pierre-Paul claims he was at only 70 percent strength, and he notes that the upcoming surgery should help him get back to 100 percent before the 2021 campaign begins. He has one season remaining on a two-year, $25 million contract, with $5 million of his $12.5 million salary guaranteed for 2021, per OverTheCap.com.

Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Another impactful season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Paul, who compiled three solo tackles and a pass breakup Sunday during the Buccaneers' 31-9 win over the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV, finished the 2020 regular season with 55 tackles (34 solo), 9.5 sacks, two interceptions, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries across 16 games.

The veteran edger rusher was in as fine a form as ever during the 2020 campaign. He played in every game for the third time in four years while posting his second-best sack tally of the last six seasons, and his four forced fumbles were a career high. Pierre-Paul inked a two-year, $25 million deal with Tampa Bay last offseason, so he seems assured of returning to the fold and playing a prominent role once again in 2021.

Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Green light for Super Bowl
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Paul (knee) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's Super Bowl matchup against the Chiefs.

Pierre-Paul took the field for just one practice this week, but that's been standard procedure for most of the year. The veteran will be ready for Sunday's game as he seeks the second ring of his career. Pierre-Paul racked up 55 tackles, 9.5 sacks, six pass breakups and four forced fumbles over 16 regular-season games, and he tacked on another two sacks in the postseason.

Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Bumps to limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Paul (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Pierre-Paul's practice reps are still being managed, but it's encouraging to see him log limited activity after having been listed as a non-participant Wednesday. There doesn't appear to be any real worry about his status heading into the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Absent from practice, as usual
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Paul didn't practice Wednesday due to a knee injury.

Pierre-Paul has regularly had his practice reps capped this season, and there's not yet any reason to believe that his lack of activity to begin the week represents anything other than the status quo continuing. The veteran edge rusher hasn't missed a game all year, and he played 86 percent of defensive snaps and notched two sacks during the Buccaneers' NFC Championship Game victory over Green Bay, despite sitting out three straight practices leading up to the contest.

Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Notches pair of sacks in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Paul (knee) is not listed with an injury designation for Sunday's NFC divisional-round game against the Saints.

Pierre-Paul had his practice reps heavily managed this week, as he missed all three of Tampa Bay's sessions, but it appears as though he was simply receiving routine rest to account for his knee injury. The veteran pass rusher managed 9.5 sacks during the regular season, and his ability to provide pressure will be vital for the Buccaneers' defense versus Drew Brees and the Saints' excellent O-line.

Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Listed as DNP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Paul (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

Pierre-Paul has been battling knee problems throughout the regular season but hasn't missed a game. The 32-year-old has posted impressive numbers this season so far, racking up 55 tackles (35 solo), 9.5 sacks, two interceptions, six pass breakups and four forced fumbles, and hopefully will be able to suit up for Sunday's divisional-round matchup against the Saints.

Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Ready to face Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Paul (knee) does not carry an injury designation for Saturday's wild-card matchup in Washington.

Pierre-Paul received his customarily capped practice reps to begin the week before logging a limited session Thursday, but there was never any real doubt about the veteran pass rusher's availability. He'll look to provide pressure against either Alex Smith (calf) or Taylor Heinicke.

Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Assumes spot on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Paul (knee) was listed as a non-participant on Tuesday's practice estimate, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Pierre-Paul is consistently limited or absent altogether for the first practice to start the week. The veteran linebacker didn't miss a game in the regular season, racking up 55 tackles, 9.5 sacks, six pass breakups and two interceptions. Barring a setback, Pierre-Paul should be available for Saturday's wild-card matchup against Washington.

Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Will suit up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Paul (knee) does not have an injury tag for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

The veteran sat out practice Friday following a pair of limited sessions to begin the week, but he will be able to play, as usual, in the regular-season finale. Tampa Bay has carefully maintained Pierre-Paul's practice regimen throughout the campaign, and it appears to have paid off as he has accumulated 9.5 sacks while playing in every contest this season.

Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Limited to start week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Paul (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday.

Pierre-Paul's typical maintenance schedule involves starting the week with limited practice reps, so there's not yet any reason for abundant concern regarding his Week 17 availability. The veteran pass rusher hasn't missed a game this season.

December 24, 2020 05:12 PM
Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Not on final injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Paul (knee) does not have an injury designation for Saturday's game against the Lions.

JPP logged limited practice sessions Tuesday and Wednesday before sitting out entirely Thursday, which is in line with his typical maintenance schedule. Despite dealing with a balky knee throughout the season, the veteran has played in each of Tampa Bay's 14 contests, registering 9.5 sacks and 50 tackles (31 solo).

December 23, 2020 07:32 PM
Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Held back in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Paul (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

This has been standard procedure for the veteran edge rusher this season, but he has suited up every week, registering 9.5 sacks through 14 games. Pierre-Paul should be in the lineup Saturday against the Lions barring an unforeseen setback.

December 18, 2020 03:20 PM
Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Sheds injury tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Paul (knee) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Pierre-Paul didn't practice Friday, but it appears that the cap on his reps this week was due to maintenance, as usual. The veteran pass rusher has put together back-to-back games with a sack, and he'll look to keep his momentum up against Matt Ryan and the Falcons.

December 17, 2020 07:12 PM
Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Limited again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Paul (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Pierre-Paul has now logged back-to-back limited sessions to begin the week, correcting an initial report which stated that he sat out entirely Wednesday. In any case, the Buccaneers have regularly managed Pierre-Paul's practice reps this season, so there's not yet any reason to worry about his Week 15 availability.

December 17, 2020 01:12 AM
Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Missed practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Paul (knee) was a non-participant during Wednesday's practice, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.

Pierre-Paul continues to manage the knee issue, but it's concerning that the veteran was completely sidelined Wednesday. 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.

Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Cleared despite lack of practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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. It's fair to wonder whether JPP's lingering knee issue will limit him on game day, though it hasn't slowed him down much thus far this season; he already has 8.5 sacks, having reached that mark for the fourth consecutive campaign.

December 9, 2020 08:16 PM
Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Limited practice status
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Paul (knee) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice.

The veteran continues to manage the knee issue, so it's not concerning to see him start the week limited. Expect Pierre-Paul to continue to handle his usual starting role at linebacker for Sunday's game against Minnesota, as he's racked up 8.5 sacks through 12 games this season.
