NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul was not at Giants practice on Wednesday, as the 2011 Pro-Bowler is dealing with back spasms, the New York Daily News reported.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin told reporters following practice that the 2011 First-Team All Pro will be held out of Friday night’s game against the Chicago Bears at MetLife Stadium for “precautionary” reasons.

It hasn’t been an ideal start to the season for Pierre-Paul, who established himself as a dominant force on the defensive line in 2011.

The 2010 first-round draft pick of the Giants has been scrutinized over the last few days for alleged hazing against cornerback Prince Amukamara. A video put online by punter Steve Weatherford showed Pierre-Paul dumping the Nebraska alum into a tub of ice water.

Pierre-Paul was sensational for the G-Men last season in helping the Giants take home their fourth Lombardi Trophy. The six-foot-five, 278-pounder amassed 86 tackles, forced two fumbles and recorded 16.5 sacks.

Pierre-Paul, Justin Tuck and  Osi Umenyiora form arguably the most dangerous defensive line in the NFL.

Uh-oh, Giants fans. Better hope that his absence on Friday is in fact “precautionary.” Sound off with your thoughts and comments below…
