Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul has said he wanted to come back this year, telling reporters “I’m never going to shut it down.”
But that seems to be precisely what doctors are telling him to do. That’s the word from Adam Schefter of ESPN, who said it has been recommended that he not play again this year because of his shoulder injury.
The Giants have nothing to play for but pride, and that seems to be what’s driving Pierre-Paul’s motivation to play as well.
But in a year slowed by his recovery from back surgery, then knee problems and now the shoulder, it’s almost like somebody’s trying to send him a sign.
Maybe he needs to see a few broken mirrors and black cats before he gets the message.
