IN THE WAKE of Jason Pierre-Paul’s visit with the New York Giants’ team doctors last week, new details are emerging about the specific injuries Pierre-Paul sustained in a fireworks accident July 4.

According to ESPN’s Dan Graziano, Pierre-Paul is not only missing his entire right index finger, but he is also missing part of his right thumb.

Graziano broke this news on ESPN, saying:

He’s missing the tip of his thumb. It was presented to me as not a significant portion of the thumb… He also had a procedure done on his middle finger, a repair procedure done on his middle finger as recently as three days before he met with Giants team doctors last week.”

The newest details of the status of Pierre-Paul’s injury follow reports this past weekend that the defensive end’s injuries were more serious than previously thought. They have also prevented him from working out and subsequently caused him to lose serious weight.

Graziano also speculated that Pierre-Paul will miss the entire season. This could cost him as much as $14.8 million, the amount he would’ve earned this season under the Giants’ franchise tag.
