Draft Scout *Jason Pierre-Paul News
12/30/13 - DE Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) said he was encouraged by his progress made in his rehab. He also said that he would make a decision on whether to have surgery no later than the end of January in order to give himself the most amount of time possible to rehab.
12/26/13 - --DE Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) is still unable to practice and is unlikely to be active on Sunday.
12/18/13 - DE Jason Pierre-Paul continues to be conflicted over his desire to play again this season and his desire to avoid the risk of needing surgery on his ailing shoulder.
"At the end of the day, I'm not a quitter," Pierre-Paul said. "I'm going to try my best to be out there with my teammates."
At the same time, Pierre-Paul knows that he has to be smart with his injury because he believes that if he stays the course and continues to rehab his injury, he will avoid the need for surgery.
"I think I'm doing pretty good in my rehabbing and just getting better on that injury," he said. "I don't really want to have surgery unless it's called for it. I think with me rehabbing and staying on schedule, that I won't need surgery."
Pierre-Paul, who admitted that if he played again and made his shoulder worse that surgery would then become a necessity, said that he has a full range of motion in his ailing joint, but that he doesn't have the full strength necessary to push and fight blockers.
"I can't go out there and defend myself so if I can't do that, then there's no reason for me to be out there playing," he said. "I play defense and I deliver a blow.
"I'm not going to put myself in a predicament where I go out there and then I have my teammates looking at me crazy. If you're not well enough to play, you should be on the sideline. I'm trying to get back out there though.
12/18/13 - DE Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) did not practice on Wednesday and is unlikely to play on Sunday.
