Jason Pierre-Paul to Miss 6 Weeks With Neck Injury

Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul has been put on the reserve/non-football injury list, which means he will not be able to play for the first six weeks of the season according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Pierre-Paul suffered a cervical fracture in his neck after a car accident in May. He will be out at least six weeks and could miss more time. He just recently stopped wearing a neck brace and hasn’t started conditioning for the season. If he isn’t activated within 21 days after week six, he will be out for the season.

The 30-year-old led the team in sacks last season with 12.5. He has 71 sacks in his career and has made two Pro Bowls. His first eight seasons in the league were spent with the New York Giants, while last season was his first with the Buccaneers.
