Jason Pierre-Paul undergoes another hand surgery

Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who suffered serious hand injuries as a result of a Fourth of July fireworks accident, is undergoing another surgery.

Pierre-Paul posted a photo of himself on the operating table on Instagram this morning as he prepared to have his hand worked on again.

This procedure is intended to give Pierre-Paul more flexibility in his middle finger, with the hopes that next season he’ll be able to wear a modified glove and have some grip strength in his hand. Last season he wore a full-hand club and could not grasp anything with his injured hand.

Pierre-Paul missed the first half of the season because of the injury and recorded only one sack in the second half of the season. He’ll become a free agent in March, and any team considering signing him to a contract will want to take a thorough medical examination of his hand, to get an idea of exactly what he’ll be able to do in 2016.

    Now if he didn’t hide like a scared little boy and came immediately to New York after blowing his hand apart….where the good surgeons are, I’m certain his claw would have been in better shape.

    It’s really sad he ruined his career and mangled his hand for life, all being stupid. We make choices in life and some of those have consequences. Be smart you only live once.

    There’s another 4th of July before there’s another football season maybe he will have matching hands

    He better show up five minutes early.

    What a joke.

    Every choice has consequences, son. Not just ‘some’ of them…..

    JPP stands for Just Plain Pathetic!

    He’s getting a 5 finger discount from the Giants during the next contract negotiations.

    He posted a selfie as he lay on the operating table????? Crave attention much?

    I just can’t read about this anymore. The imagery is too disturbing and I find myself struggling mightily to refrain from sarcastic derision.

    If he can regain some ability to grasp he could be a big bargain for a team (hopefully the Giants). Many people here will make fun of the guy but if you actually saw all of his snaps this year you know that he is still as good at getting penetration as he always was….his return to the field probably earned Ayers (9.5 sacks—-8.5 of those AFTER jpp returned) a nice upcoming free agent deal.

    Maybe he should just get a hook.

    Only in America do people blow their money on things that blow up and blow their fingers off and blow 15 million

    Going to the bathroom is getting little more difficult for Jason

  14. phinfan says: Jan 18, 2016 1:33 PM

    A morning star, knife or hook would be an upgrade…

  15. it's all bs says: Jan 18, 2016 1:36 PM

    Good luck JPP….we all make stupid mistakes it is unfortunate that yours may have cost you your NFL career.

  16. daytontriangles says: Jan 18, 2016 1:41 PM

    Just 3D print up a prosthetic in team colors and he’s good to go.

  17. immafubared says: Jan 18, 2016 1:57 PM

    Another hand surgery? How many hands does he have. Why not get the one thats bad fixed rather than another hand

  18. icanspeel says: Jan 18, 2016 2:02 PM

    If I was a team interested in signing him… I’d wait until July 5th to offer a contract.

  19. jag1959 says: Jan 18, 2016 2:06 PM

    Never a shortage of internet warriors willing to kick a guy while he’s down.
    Good luck with the surgery JPP!

    If the fuse had gone off just 1 second later, while he was in his wind up, it could’ve blown his ear off. Very lucky man.

  21. britishteeth says: Jan 18, 2016 3:03 PM

    He’s going to blow up next season.

  22. bubba703 says: Jan 18, 2016 3:55 PM

    I hope his surgery is successful. More flexibility with his middle finger makes it easier to drive in NJ if he resigns with the Giants.

  23. 2dat says: Jan 18, 2016 3:59 PM

    FYI, Looks more like a hospital bed instead of an operating table……BTW LMAO to that 5 finger discount comment

  24. 2dat says: Jan 18, 2016 4:00 PM

    Come on down to NOLA JPP> The Saints need a pass rusher

  25. brianh992 says: Jan 18, 2016 5:25 PM

    Mds. U like it to?

  26. immafubared says: Jan 18, 2016 6:02 PM

    Should have had an amputation and a big hook instead. He can always pick his nose with his other hand.

  27. itsfootballfolks says: Jan 18, 2016 6:11 PM

    Man, people are harsh. This man worked hard and came back to play the toughest sport there is after a horrendous accident. I don’t know much else about his personality or travails with the law, so it’s kind of hard to understand why so many people
    can be so crass about someone losing MULTIPLE fingers from an ACCIDENT.

    Nothing but respect from this Patriots fan for what he’s done to come back to football. Good luck to him, hope the surgery is a success.
