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.

New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul is undergoing back surgery Tuesday, June 4. He played through the injury last year and received multiple epidural injections. Doctors believe he'll be better by September.
Huddle Up: JPP's back situation figured heavily in his 2012 dropoff, which saw him go from 16.5 sacks and 93 tackles in 2011 to 6.5 and 66 this past season. Now the question is, with the DE having surgery this far into the offseason, when he'll be ready to contribute come the regular season.
