Pierre-Paul had his right finger amputated and his thumb was severely fractured after a fireworks incident.
On top of that, there are reportedly varying whispers about Pierre-Paul’s weight, as he was down “at least 20 pounds, maybe more,” upon visiting with the Giants.
A source tells the two insiders that JPP weighed just 246 pounds, but another team source said he was “around 255 pounds.”
Pierre-Paul was previously listed 6-foot-5, 278 pounds, but was looking to get down to 265 for training camp.
Earlier in the week, Pierre-Paul posted a video on Instagram of him bench pressing 240 pounds. However, it has actually raised more concerns about his condition.
