Jason Pierre-Paul posted a video to Instagram on Tuesday, showing him still wearing a neck brace.

He will have his neck re-evaluated in two months, Greg Auman of TheAthletic.com reports. The earliest Pierre-Paul will return to the field is October, Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians said last month.

Pierre-Paul fractured a neck vertebra in a one-car accident in May.

“If you woke up this morning, count your blessings,” Pierre-Paul wrote on social media. “We all go through things in life, and if you’re going through something, it will pass. Trust me. Just remember that we [are] blessed to be here and make the best out of every situation.

“Things turn out best for those who make the best out of the way things turn out.”

Pierre-Paul made 12.5 sacks in his first season with the Bucs after arriving from the Giants in a trade.

  1. JPP mist be the most unlucky guy. Seems like the safest place for him to be is on the field and that is just crazy.

  2. Great attitude, it’s just a shame he’s had to lean on it twice to rescue his career from an off field injury. Would’ve been nice to channel that energy into your typical season prep instead of an all or nothing rehab effort

  3. I’m not sure this guy is all that unlucky. He played with fireworks and had a one car accident. It seems to me these “accidents” could have been avoided.
