Jason Pierre-Paul didn’t seem overly concerned about his groin injury after the Giants’ loss to the Steelers Sunday, but now the defensive end’s health might be a little more of a question mark.
Pierre-Paul is visiting sports hernia expert William Meyers in Philadelphia Tuesday, NFL Network first reported. The initial diagnosis, however, is that the defensive end does not have a sports hernia, according to ESPN.
That being said, Pierre-Paul sent a message out on Snapchat and wasn’t making any promises about getting back on the field. Pierre Paul’s Snapchat Story featured a picture of him getting medical treatment before he says, “It’s all cool though. I’ll be back…hopefully.”
If the Giants were to lose Pierre-Paul for any amount of time that would be significant. The star pass rusher has turned on the jets lately, recording 5.5 sacks combined in the two games leading up to the Pittsburgh contest when he got hurt.
Though 8-4, the Giants face a critical stretch of four games to finish the season, starting with the Cowboys on Sunday night this week, as they try to make a final push for the playoffs.
