Jason Pierre-Paul sounds ready to return to NFL action after losing his right index finger in a fireworks accident, despite doubts by the New York Giants that he is ready to play.
According to ESPN.com's Dan Graziano, the Giants are still unconvinced that the two-time Pro Bowler is ready to return to last season's form. But Pierre-Paul was quick to point out that his on-field performance won't be negatively impacted by the amputation of his right hand digit:
I can't think of the last time my index finger got me a sack 😉— iamjasonpierrepaul (@UDWJPP) September 17, 2015
And after Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo had his way with the Giants defense in the waning moments of Sunday night's loss, bringing back JPP's sacking ability would be something the Giants just might just have to take a chance on.
