Pretty soon Jason Pierre-Paul will have more workout videos available than Jane Fonda and Richard Simmons.
The injured defensive end posted his latest clip on Instagram on Tuesday morning, a short video of him bench-pressing in a weight room. He was using a towel to aide and/or hide his mangled right hand. The caption with the video was: "Getting back right."
It all seems to be part of Pierre-Paul's plan to illustrate how ready he is to return to football -- and getting paid to play football -- while the Giants wait. Previous videos have shown him running while pulling a weighted sled and he has tweeted other messages that demonstrate his desire to play.
Pierre-Paul has not signed with the Giants and remains on the team's reserve/franchise tag list. He loses out on more than $800,000 from the maximum value of his tag tender each week he remains unsigned and does not play.
Photos that surfaced last week showed that Pierre-Paul had his right index finger and part of his right thumb amputated after a fireworks mishap on July 4.
DRC likely out
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will likely miss tomorrow night's game against Washington due to a concussion he suffered in the first half against Atlanta. "He's in the protocol, which, as you know, has been really set up to do a very thorough job of evaluating the player," Tom Coughlin said. "It's a difficult thing for them to get back on track with a Thursday night game."
Flowers is 'game-time'
Coughlin indicated that the status of LT Ereck Flowers (ankle) could be a game-time decision. "They're going to be very conservative and make sure that he has a good grasp of the healing process," Coughlin said of the rookie who played through the injury in Week 1 but had to leave the game on Sunday.
