According to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post, it sounds like Pierre-Paul could miss the Giants season opener.
“A back is a really, really horrible thing to have, back surgery period, and you don’t want to rush back,’’ Pierre-Paul said. “I’m not concentrating on the first game, the second game, the third game, fourth game, fifth game, sixth game. I’m just trying to come back when I feel like I’m ready to come back.’’
Pierre-Paul says he doesn’t know if he’ll be ready for week one.
“I don’t know, only time can tell,’’ Pierre-Paul said. “It’s all on me to recover. I can’t promise nothing. I can’t say I will be back for the season opener.”
The most important thing is that JPP gets healthy again, not that he’s able to play when the regular season rolls around.
