New York Giants franchise defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul reportedly had his right index finger amputated on Wednesday following a July 4 weekend fireworks accident.
But even with the gruesome news of the lost finger, Pierre-Paul’s career might not be in jeopardy according to CBS Sports John Breech.
The Giants can’t know what to make of this news because they reportedly are hearing about this from media reports. The team sent long-time trainer Ronnie Barnes and special assistant (and former player) Jessie Armstead to visit Pierre-Paul in the hospital, but he refused to let them see him. Other reports say that the Giants offered medical help but were rebuffed with that, too.
