NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The New York Giants announced today that star defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul has been activated from the PUP list. He is now cleared to practice.
He wasn’t committing to whether he would be ready for Week 1 in Dallas. That being said, today’s announcement is terrific news for Tom Coughlin and the Giants.
The pass rush specialist underwent herniated disc surgery in June. Pierre-Paul said he isn’t experiencing pain. He spoke with Art Stapleton from the Record.
“I don’t have pain … That pain is gone,” Pierre-Paul said.
Pierre-Paul has recorded 27.5 sacks through 48 career games through three seasons with the Giants. In 2012, he made 66 tackles and recorded 6.5 sacks.
