In the 14-second video, Pierre-Paul is seen running sprints with weights tied around his waist in an indoor facility while donning Giants team gear.
The video, likely a response to those who are doubting whether Pierre-Paul can still play after his horrific Fourth of July fireworks accident, never shows a clear image of his right hand. Nevertheless, the absence of his index finger and a clearly bandaged hand is noticeable.
If he cannot play, JPP stands to lose his $14.8 million franchise tender and a possible long-term deal he was hoping to gain before the fireworks incident. If the Giants were to rescind the tag, they would stand to save $871,000 in cash and cap room for every game Pierre-Paul missed.
The Giants are still hoping Pierre-Paul is healthy enough to return to form as a premier pass-rusher who registered 12.5 sacks for the team last season.
