Giants activate Pierre-Paul from PUP

Jason Pierre-Paul AP

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.

    Not a good move. JPP had a magical year a couple of years ago, but he’ll never be the same. He risks serious permanent back problems to boot.

    The Giants should fold the tent and go all to get the first pick in the draft and get Clowney. They’re in rebuilding mode already. Losing Stevie Brown, their best DB of the past 25 years, was another bid bad blow.

    Stevie Brown was far from their best DB in 25 years. He is a capable Safety who is not a liability. Thats all. Great news on JPP, dont rush back too fast, but encouraging sign.

    I guess this means they are winning the Super Bowl. Right floriotime?

    Glad I’m a fan of a team that doesn’t capitulate to their dopey fan base by unnecessarily rushing back their star player.

    you told your fan base to take a dive for the season to get Clowney. Save the tears for someone who cares.

    cowboys are going to beat the giants big…..boys are going to win the NFC East easily and be in the SB this year. We have reorg’d and have some serious talent and awesome coaches on the defensive side.

    Injuries killed us last year so if we stay healthy NFC East champs and SB champs.

    Isn’t Romo still the Cowboys QB? He is captain choke artist. The Cowboys will never win anything with him under center. Also the owner is a complete joke, he needs to still in his owner box and not in the locker room.

    Stevie Brown is a safety not DB, and not their best secondary player. JPP also had also had a good season 2010 for a none starter. There is no such thing as a rebuilding year in the NFL anymore, it is called retooling. Stick with your team because you have no clue about the Giants. I bet you are Skins or Eagles because you have no clue about football and their fans are like that.

    as a giants fan this 24 year old kid had a procedure {herniated disc} done thousands a times a day.
    JPP will be playing without pain & shots before games like last year, and I expect his play to be much higher as he sheds the rust, if he has any?
    Nonetheless, the boys looked good protecting Romo, who went 13-18 2 td’s and the defensive adding 4 TO’s.
    Giants have stocked up on DT’s & DE’s, there O-line however, is old and thin, and only Kyle Bosworth, 6’1 245lbs, like Sean Lee, looks like a player who can move around, and get a rush, from the “rover” position he might get.
    All this means, a good game coming!

    Was Jacquian Williams cut and I missed it?

    Cowboys O-line is pure garbage. JPP will slam dunk in Dallas again in week one. Cowboy fans praying he won’t play. Go Blue!
