In the four days since Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul suffered injuries in a fireworks accident, information about his condition has been vague and sketchy. On Wednesday night, ESPN provided a large dose of clarity.
Adam Schefter reports that Pierre-Paul had his right index finger amputated today. ESPN actually obtained — and Schefter actually posted — the medical document confirming the removal of the finger. (As if no one would have taken his word for it.)
Schefter also reports that a “medical source” expects Pierre-Paul to play this season, “sooner than you think.”
If Pierre-Paul wasn’t on board with the release of his medical documents, Schefter and/or others may have to eventually consult with some “legal sources.”
Hopefully those “legal sources” will end up being better than any of the other sources who told multiple reporters that Pierre-Paul was not in danger of losing any fingers.
