NFL Injury Report:
New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is still recovering from back surgery that he underwent back in June to repair a herniated disc in his lower back. While head coach Tom Coughlin said that Pierre-Paul was doing well with his rehab, he didn't give any answers as to whether or not the star defensive end would be ready to go in time for the Giants' Week 1 match up with the Dallas Cowboys, according to NBCSports.com.
Jason Pierre-Paul said he felt about 75 percent healthy. However, Pierre-Paul would not give any answers on when he would be back in action either. He said his goal was to continue with his rehab and return whenever he is ready, rather than rush himself back for the season opener.
"A back is a really, really horrible thing to have, back surgery period, and you don't want to rush back. I'm not concentrating on the first game, the second game, the third game, fourth game, fifth game, sixth game. I'm just trying to come back when I feel like I'm ready to come back" Pierre-Paul told Paul Schwartz of the New York Post.
Luckily for the Giants, they have a tremendous amount of depth on their defensive line. While Pierre-Paul is out, their starting defensive ends will be Justin Tuck, who can be one of the best pass rushers in the NFL, and Mathias Kiwanuka who is more than serviceable. This makes it much easier for the Giants to accept the reality of the situation, and stay on the cautious side. However, they are still hoping Pierre-Paul is ready to come back sooner rather than later, in hopes that their pass rush can be as dominant as it was in 2011, when the Giants won their second Super Bowl in five years.

New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese wasted no time in professing what his expectation is of the 2013 NFL season.
“All I know is that we’ve been in the playoffs one time in the last four years, and that’s really not acceptable for us,” Reese said before the first day of training camp, according to ESPN.com. “That’s not our standards. That’s not what we shoot...
David Wilson and Andre Brown
The New York Giants opened up training camp this weekend with most of the starting jobs already locked up. The one position that is still up grabs is running back, and Andre Brown and David Wilson are the two players fighting for it.
Last year, David Wilson burst onto the scene as an excellent kick returner, and only really contributed to the running...
With Hakeem Nicks sidelined with tightness ni his groin, second-year Giants receiver Rueben Randle has taken advantage with the reps with the first team offense and has been dominant, according to the New York Daily News.
Then again, Rueben Randle showed himself capable of being a deep threat Monday. Nicks didn’t make a single catch — and wasn’t even targeted — so Randle...
During an interview with NFL AM on Monday morning, wide receiver Victor Cruz was asked who the Giants number one receiver is.
“I think the No. 1 wideout is Hakeem Nicks,” Cruz said, via Ralph Vacchiano of the NY Daily News. “I mean, he’s been here longer, he understands this offense. He’s our big-play guy, he’s on the outside. So I definitely think he’s our No. 1 receiver...
New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul is on the PUP list as he continues to recover from back surgery and said that he feels like he’s 75 percent healthy at this point.
He also didn’t make any predictions about his return date except that the goal was to return when he’s ready, not the Cowboys opener.
An already paper thin defensive line needs the young pass rushing demon...
Victor Cruz finally got his money from the Giants, but Hakeem Nicks is still patiently waiting for his extension.
Nicks miss a good portion of the Giants’ OTAs because of his contract dispute, and it’s held him back some, as he’s currently dealing with a strained groin.
There are some concerns among the Giants organization about Nicks and his status, but Cruz is hearing none...
General manager Jerry Reese kicked off Giants training camp by putting everyone on notice including himself.
His boss hasn’t read anyone the riot act but that doesn’t mean he’s remotely satisfied with what has gone down lately.
“I think more about the three out of four than I do the Super Bowl’’ Giants co-owner John Mara told The Post yesterday. “It’s sort of the...
The Giants Beat's Rick Laughland sat down with New York Giants' prized defensive tackle Mike Patterson to talk about his expectations this season and how he can contribute to Big Blue's revamped pass-rush in 2013.
The New York Giants gave wide receiver Victor Cruz a six-year, $45.879 million deal earlier this month making him the team’s highest-paid wideout on the roster. But the 26-year-old says he’s not the Giants top receiver. “I think the No. 1 wideout is Hakeem Nicks,” Cruz said on NFL
