Jason Pierre-Paul has come to terms with almost everything involved in the rehabilitation process.
He admitted Thursday that he won’t be 100 percent healthy until next season – he says his surgically repaired back is about 75 percent now – and he knows his coaches weren’t expecting “Super Man” coming into the year.
But if Pierre-Paul had any regrets one might be not addressing the injury sooner. Maybe this season a massive struggle to build himself back into the player he once was could have been avoided altogether.
Maybe he could have gotten back surgery on New Year’s Eve 2012 the day after the Giants were eliminated from the playoff race and breezed through the 12-week recovery process in January and February of 2013.
“The day we didn’t make it to the playoffs the next day I could have gone in and had back surgery” Pierre-Paul told The Star-Ledger on Thursday. “I would have been ready for (this) season you know what I’m saying?”
Pierre-Paul does not fault the Giants for this.
