Jason Pierre-Paul To Undergo Back Surgery

Posted By Sports Talk Florida On June 4, 2013 @ 11:24 AM In News and Rumors,NFL | 1 Comment

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul played through a bad back injury last season, receiving multiple epidurals during the season just to get him through, and he’s undergoing surgery Tuesday morning in Los Angeles.

Schefter writes the belief is that Pierre-Paul would be recovered by Week 1 of the 2013 regular season. But the surgery also means that Pierre-Paul likely will start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

As for why Pierre-Paul waited until June to get this back surgery, that remains unclear at this point.

In 2012, the back pain started early for Pierre-Paul, but he attributed it to his normal body schedule and how he usually had back pain early in the season. He also had back problems in 2011.
