Giants' Star Defensive End Fails to Report to Camp ; Pierre-Paul out of Touch since Losing a Finger in Holiday Fireworks Mishap


Pennington, Bill, International New York Times


Jason Pierre-Paul, who lost an index finger in a fireworks accident, did not report for training camp, and the team has no information on his condition.

New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who lost his right index finger in a Fourth of July fireworks accident, did not report for the first day of training camp Thursday, and the team co- owner, John Mara, said the Giants had no information on the condition of Pierre-Paul, their best defensive player.

"I don't know how many fingers he has," Mara said. "We have no idea what type of condition he is in, and that doesn't give us any comfort. We don't know anything more than you know."

Asked if he had any idea when Pierre-Paul planned to report to training camp, Mara answered, "None."

Mara added that until the Giants examined Pierre-Paul, they could not count on him playing this year.

"We have to plan on moving forward without him," Mara said. "Until we see him, I don't see how we can count on him, certainly not for the opening of the season."

Mara spoke in a calm voice but frequently voiced his frustration with Pierre-Paul, who did not allow Giants medical personnel to visit him at a Florida hospital shortly after the accident, which caused other unspecified injuries to his right hand.

In March, the Giants made Pierre-Paul their franchise player, which guaranteed him $14.8 million this season if he signed the franchise offer, which Pierre-Paul did not do.

The two sides were hoping to reach a long-term deal, and the Giants had made Pierre-Paul a multiyear offer. That contract offer has been withdrawn by the team.

The Giants could still withdraw their franchise tag offer, which would make Pierre-Paul an unrestricted free agent, but Mara said that was not in the team's immediate plans.

"I don't think we're going to do anything until we actually see where he's at," Mara said. "He's a rare athlete who has played at a very high level before. He is a great kid, and we've loved having him around here. He fits in well.

"I can only surmise that he's not receiving very good advice."

The team could also negotiate a compromise contract for an amount based on how many games Pierre-Paul might play this season. …
