Pierre-Paul’s status in doubt, despite Coughlin’s optimism

Giants coach Tom Coughlin sounded an optimistic note when describing two of his injured stars today, saying that defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul and receiver Victor Cruz are “full speed ahead.”

However, PFT’s Mike Florio is reporting that Pierre-Paul, who is recovering from back surgery, is very questionable for Sunday’s opener against the Cowboys.

Officially, the Giants listed both Pierre-Paul and Cruz as limited participants in practice. Fullback Henry Hynoski and defensive end Damontre Moore were also limited participants. Center David Baas (knee) and tight end Adrien Robinson (foot) were both held out of practice entirely, while running back Andre Brown (fibula) and tackle David Diehl (thumb) have already been ruled out for Sunday’s game.

For the Cowboys, defensive end Anthony Spencer is still not participating in practice with a knee injury. Running back Lance Dunbar (foot) and safety Danny McCray (hamstring) were also out of practice.

    Let JPP rest. These first four games won’t make or break our season. We need him 100% for the stretch run not 60% for the entire year.

    That’s all the more time for him to haze 170 lb db’s.

    Send JP to German to get Kobe treatment for quick recovery.

    Still can’t believe that JPP waited so long before he had the surgery. Poor planning.
