According to a report by ESPN's NFL insider Adam Schefter, Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul may have suffered a potential season ending injury in a single-car accident last week in south Florida.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have not confirmed the report by Schefter.
According to TMZ, the crash occurred at some point around 5am on Saturday morning and police in South Florida and local police say the Buccaneers defensive end did not violate any laws in the accident.
Buccaneers GM Jason Licht released a statement Saturday:
“We have been informed that Jason was involved in a one-car accident early this morning in South Florida in which he was not cited. We know that he was evaluated at a local hospital and has since been released. Our immediate concern is for the safety and well-being of Jason and his passenger. We have been in contact with Jason and will be getting him further evaluated by our medical staff in the near future.”
Jason Pierre-Paul has not attended any of the voluntary workouts that the Buccaneers have held this offseason under new coach Bruce Arians.
