In early May, Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive lineman Jason Pierre-Paul suffered a neck injury in a single vehicle car accident. And since the accident, there has been widespread speculation if he would play this season, let alone ever again. Well on Wednesday, head coach Bruce Arians shared the information to the media that Pierre-Paul will begin practicing individual drills next week, while the team is on their scheduled bye week following their trip to London to play the Carolina Panthers this Sunday.
Arians spoke about the leadership that Pierre-Paul will bring to the football team & got excited when he expressed the thought of the veteran being added to a pass rush that already has linebackers Shaq Barrett & Carl Nassib.
Pierre-Paul is officially not on the team's current roster & there has been no timetable announced as of when he could see game action.
