Giants Will Not Shut Down Jason Pierre-Paul

jason_pierre_paul_2013Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul missed the teams Week 13 victory over the Redskins because of a shoulder injury thats caused him problems for several weeks.

Pierre-Paul was able to fight through the injury to make a crucial interception in a victory over the Packers, but he was completely ineffective against the Cowboys after spending the week making promises about making Dallas shed blood during their visit to the Meadowlands. With the shoulder not doing any better last week and the Giants playoff chances increasingly remote, coach Tom Coughlin was asked if the team might officially shut Pierre-Paul down after two weeks where its looked like hes unofficially packed it in for the season.

I dont think so, Coughlin said, via the Newark Star-Ledger. I dont think it [the injury] is in that position. We really dont know what his status will be this week until we get a little bit closer to Wednesday. He has been treated and rested and hopefully theres going to be some progress made.
