New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul Injures Hand in Fireworks Accident

By Vincent Frank

Remember when our parents told us not to play with fireworks growing up? Well, it appears that New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul did not heed that call.

According to Andy Slater of WINZ in Miami, FL. Pierre-Paul “severely” injured his hand during a fireworks accident this weekend:

Details are still coming in regarding the situation, but it doesn’t look to be too good for the two-time Pro Bowl performer. The former first-round pick has yet to sign his $14.8 million franchise tag tender for next season. Depending on the seriousness of the injuries, his 2015 season could be in question.

More than that, let’s all hope Pierre-Paul’s injuries are not too significant.

We will have updated information when it becomes available.
