New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul will practice with his team’s regular defense Wednesday ahead of his possible return Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, reports NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.

The Giants signed Pierre-Paul to a one-year deal on Oct. 27, after a four-month absence stemming from a fireworks accident over the summer. He lost his right index finger and a portion of his thumb in the incident.

Pierre-Paul’s contract includes a guarantee of $1.5 million in base salary, plus a total of $1.5 million in per game roster bonuses. Additional playing time and sack incentives push the total potential value of the contract to $8.7 million. 

Rapoport also reports that if Pierre-Paul plays Sunday, he’ll have eight weeks to reach seven weeks of incentives laid out in his deal.

A two-time Pro Bowler and 2011 first team All-Pro selection, Pierre-Paul was selected by the Giants in the first round of the 2010 draft.

The Giants (4–4) will travel to Tampa Bay to face the Buccaneers (3–4) on Sunday.
