The second big-name defensive player has already left the Giants-Jets game, and it appears both sides can breathe a sigh of relief.
Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul left the game, and though he walked off the field under his own power, was having his right knee checked by a fleet of trainers and doctors.
Injuries have kept Pierre-Paul from following up on the 16.5 sacks he posted in 2011, and he has vowed to come back better than ever.
He was able to return to the game, though it’s worth monitoring.
The Jets were at least able to breathe a sigh of relief, as defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson returned to the game after leaving the field with trainers earlier.
