There will be no blood for Jason Pierre-Paul this week

When Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick was mocking the Giants for their boastful talk ahead of last week’s game, he made reference to Giants defensive end Jason Pierre Paul’s warning that Cowboys blood would be shed and asked if Pierre-Paul had even made a play during the 24-21 Dallas victory.

Pierre-Paul had one tackle, which isn’t quite enough to put any egg on Scandrick’s face. Even that modest level of production will be more than Pierre-Paul can handle this week. 

He has been ruled out of Sunday night’s trip to Washington along with three other members of the Giants, adding to a disappointing and injury-plagued season for a player who flirted with dominance on the way to the Super Bowl in 2011. His current shoulder injury comes on the heels of back surgery over the summer that left Pierre-Paul at considerably less than full speed in the first months of the season. 

The Giants defense will also be without cornerbacks Trumaine McBride and Corey Webster. Webster’s absence is no surprise as this will be the eighth game of the season that he’s missed and fourth in a row, raising the question of whether the Giants might be better off placing him on injured reserve and giving the roster spot to someone capable of helping them this season. 

Running back Brandon Jacobs is also out while wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is probable to play after missing last week’s game with an abdominal injury.

    Nicks can stay on the sideline also. Thanks for ruining any chance to win the division with that nonsense last week.

    True sign a team’s season is over- all the players who were playing through injuries are now watching from the sidelines Maybe Washington doesn’t have last place locked up yet.

    J.P.P. scared me after his 2011 season, but ever since then, something has changed…

    Haha. Giants have become such a joke. It’s priceless. They’ve made the playoffs like 2 out of 8 years. Other than the 2 luckiest runs in nfl history, they’ve become a second rate franchise…

    For me the most interesting Giants player is Eli Manning. He seems to always have a look on his face one would see from a child sent away from the dinner table for farting.

    OhnoFlorio. Your jealousy of our rings is so obvious.. Calling us lucky means your calling the Steelers and Packers lucky for their recent runs as well – funny. The Giants, Packers, and Steelers have quite a trophy case. What does your team have?
