The Giants no longer have to worry about JPP on the PUP.
The team announced they had activated star defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul from the physically unable to perform list Monday.
That’s a good sign, though it’s far from a green light for him to play in the opener. Pierre-Paul has been out of action all offseason after back surgery, and will likely need some time to get himself back to speed.
He’s said in the past he’s less focused on being available for the opener, taking a longer-range approach. That’s the smart play, and the Giants are fortunate to be deep in pass-rushers in case he still needs a few weeks to get ready.
