Pierre started eight games (24 appearances) with the Cardinals over the last two seasons, accumulating 42 tackles, 5.5 sacks and one fumble recovery across that stretch. He'll reunite with defensive coordinator James Bettcher in New York.
Pierre was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with a knee injury.
Pierre played a relatively usual 18 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Packers, but apparently suffered a serious enough knee injury to end his season. Robert Nkemdiche, Corey Peters and Rodney Gunter will handle the snaps at defensive tackle for the Cardinals.
Pierre (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com reports.
Pierre was able to practice in a limited fashion throughout the week, so the Cardinals' unit of defensive tackles will be at full strength with Robert Nkemdiche (calf) and Corey Peters (heel) also active.
Pierre has practiced on a limited basis all week, and his status for Sunday's tilt against the Chargers appears to be truly in question. With starters Robert Nkemdiche (calf) and Corey Peters (heel) also listed as questionable, the Cardinals could have trouble providing depth at the defensive tackle positions Week 12.
Pierre (to) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears, Scott Bordow of The Athletic reports.
Pierre will miss his second straight game of the season due to a toe injury. It remains to be seen how long the depth defensive tackle will remain sidelined, but until Pierre gets healthy Garrison Smith will serve as Robert Nkemdiche's primary backup.
