New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul wants to silence his critics after a lost season due to a surgically repaired back in 2013. 'I got something to prove this year, and I'm going to shut a whole bunch of people up,' he said. 'I want to shut them up, you know what I'm saying? It's not even going to be new to me. I'm confident in the way I play my game, you know what I'm saying? When I'm at the top of my game, it's ridiculous. Everyone has seen me there before.'
Huddle Up: We certainly saw it in the Giants' Super Bowl season of 2011, when he recorded 16.5 sacks and 93 total tackles. In the two seasons since then, he's had only 8.5 sacks and 93 total tackles.

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin has no idea whether DE Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) will be able to return in Week 14 to face the San Diego Chargers. 'He hasn't done anything in a week,' Coughlin said. 'He's been treated. And he's rested. Hopefully there's been some progress made.' The team won't have a clearer status until close to mid-week.
Huddle Up: If you have IDP decisions to make based around JPP's status, you're going to have to spend some time over the next few days poring over Big Blue's practice reports.

New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul (back) was able to do some things during practice Monday, Sept. 2, but is not sure if he will be able to play Week 1. Head coach Tom Coughlin said Pierre-Paul has to practice and feel good the next day in order to play Week 1.
Huddle Up: Monitor his status this week, but it might be best to leave him on your bench until he proves he can get on the field and stay there long enough to put up fantasy points.

Updating a previous report, New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese said Tuesday, Aug. 6, that he expects DE Jason Pierre-Paul (back) is expected back for the regular season opener. 'JP's on schedule,' Reese said in a radio interview. 'He's looking good, he's running around a little bit. He's going to be out on the field a little more than usual as we move along. We expect him hopefully to be back, ready to go for the (Week 1) Dallas game.' Pierre-Paul is making his way back from back surgery June 4.
Huddle Up: This is good news for IDPers, though how effective he will be out the gate will be interesting to see.
