Pierre-Paul was released from the hospital on May 4.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul suffered a neck fracture in a single-car accident last week in South Florida, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Tuesday.
According to Schefter, Pierre-Paul's injury will likely require surgery and could potentially be season-ending. Pierre-Paul will visit neck specialists this week to get a second opinion.
Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht said the crash occurred Thursday morning. Pierre-Paul was not cited and was released from the hospital on May 4.
"As we stated last week following the news of Jason’s auto accident, our immediate concern was for both Jason and his passenger," Licht said in a statement on Tuesday. "While Jason was treated and released in south Florida the same day of the accident, we wanted to ensure that our medical team had an opportunity to perform a thorough evaluation here in Tampa, and that process is currently ongoing.”
Pierre-Paul has not attended any of the Buccaneers' voluntary workouts under new coach Bruce Arians. The two-time Pro Bowler had 12.5 sacks in his first year with the Buccaneers last season. He had spent eight seasons with the New York Giants prior to being traded to Tampa Bay.
