Coughlin described Pierre-Paul’s injury as a strain and added the doctors have not cleared him to practice or play. He hopes the fourth-year player might be able to get back for one of the final two games.

Pierre-Paul said Thursday he will not need shoulder surgery. He had back surgery in June and has struggled all season to regain his form, recording two sacks.
