Giants’ Jason Pierre-Paul undergoes another surgery on hand

Monday January 18th, 2016

New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul underwent another surgery on his damaged right hand, he announced in an Instagram post on Monday.

Pierre-Paul, who sported a thick bandage on his right hand last season after a July fireworks accident, hopes to gain more flexibility in his middle finger from the surgery.

Pierre-Paul missed the first half of 2015 after undergoing a first surgery on his hand, and recorded just one sack in eight games. The 27-year-old told reporters in December that he had made the decision to play out the rest of season despite requiring additional surgery.

Pierre-Paul will be a free agent in March.
