Jason Pierre-Paul won’t need shoulder surgery

Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul realized it was going to take time to get back to being himself.

But at least it won’t take surgery.

Pierre-Paul told Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger that he recently visited with Dr. James Andrews, and that no surgery was recommended on the shoulder that bothered him all season.

He’s going to follow up again with Andrews in six weeks, but the fact he won’t need a procedure is a good sign. He also said his back was around 95 percent, and that he was fully lifting.

Getting Pierre-Paul back to himself will be a key for the Giants this offseason, especially if Justin Tuck leaves in free agency.

    Big talk little production? The guy was the main piece of a Super Bowl winning team 2 years ago? Anyone who thought he was going to come back full speed this past season off back surgery was nuts.
