Pierre-Paul insists there has been no special maintenance of his surgically-repaired hand at training camp this summer, ESPN reports. He has been unaffected by the contact, which included four practices in the past five days with pads. "My hand feels like my left hand," Pierre-Paul said, "just missing a couple fingers."

EDGE Analysis

Pierre-Paul's having a great camp so far, and paired with free-agent signee Olivier Vernon, gives the Giants a formidable pass rush.

Pierre-Paul continues to show an encouraging level of explosiveness, the Newark Star-Ledger reports. The Giants' tackles have struggled to contain Pierre-Paul off the edge.

EDGE Analysis

Perhaps "explosiveness" isn't the best word choice in this case, but Pierre-Paul at least looks like the player he was before his fireworks accident 13 months ago. If that's the case, don't sleep on the Giants defensive unit for fantasy purposes as it should rack up pressures and sacks with Oliver Vernon on the other side.

More than a year removed from blowing off his fingers in a fireworks accident, Pierre-Paul said his right hand feels the same as his left hand, the Newark Star-Ledger reports. He plans to ditch the club and wear a specially designed glove this season. "I'm not worried about no club," Pierre-Paul said. "My hand feels great. No complaining, no nothing. I've been training hard. The club is not going to be an issue."

EDGE Analysis

Playing opposite Oliver Vernon, Pierre-Paul is unlikely to be doubled very often, and if he's his old self, he could wreak havoc on opposing quarterbacks.

Pierre-Paul said he won't need any further surgeries on his right hand, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pierre-Paul famously injured his right hand in a serious fireworks accident last summer, causing him to miss the first eight games of the 2015 season. He did return with a massive cast on his hand for the second half of the campaign, but he only managed one sack in eight games, after tallying 12.5 the previous season. Following an additional surgery in January, the 27-year-old signed a one-year contract in March, presumably hoping to repair his value. Pierre-Paul should be back to full health in 2016, and he also mentioned that he lost some weight during the offseason.

The Giants and Pierre-Paul (hand) agreed to terms of a one-year contract Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite a reported late push for the unrestricted free agent from the Cardinals, Pierre-Paul will remain with the only organization that he's ever known on an incentive-laden deal. If he hits every threshold, he could earn $10.5 million, yet he wasn't extremely effective with his permanently-maimed right hand this past season, picking up one sack among 26 tackles (21 solo) in eight games. Further surgeries on the hand are expected throughout the offseason, which could impact his ability to take part in OTAs and the like.

Pierre-Paul is undergoing surgery on his right hand Monday, the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pierre-Paul revealed that he would need at least two surgeries to repair his well-documented injured right hand following the regular season, so Monday's procedure appears to be his first operation of this offseason. In doing so, Pierre-Paul may not need to wear a club over his hand in future games. In any case, Pierre-Paul's situation will be interesting to monitor in the coming months, as he's a candidate to receive the Giants' franchise tag again, or become an unrestricted free agent.

Pierre-Paul (hand) finished with just one sack and 26 total tackles in eight games. He also knocked down six passes.

EDGE Analysis

Those numbers were compiled in less than a full-time workload, and Pierre-Paul was able to get some pressure on opposing quarterbacks at times. He'll have at least one more surgery this offseason so he has better use of his injured hand (this year he played with it wrapped like a club.) It remains to be seen whether the Giants use the franchise tag on him or let him walk.

Pierre-Paul (ankle) is active for Sunday's matchup with the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

The ankle injury limited Pierre-Paul to just one practice appearance this week, but he has plenty incentive to suit up in Week 17, even though his team has already been eliminated from the playoffs. Per the terms of the one-year contract with the Giants that he signed in late October, he'll get an extra $100,000 for every sack he record, according to The Record's Art Stapleton.

Pierre-Paul recorded three solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

After going the first five games without a sack, Pierre-Paul finally notched his first of the season on Sunday against the Panthers. He's had a tough time since returning from his hand surgery, and it seems that the club on his hand is making it difficult for him to wrap up. As of now, the 26-year old pass-rusher shouldn't be considered a solid option as an IDP based on his results through six games.

Pierre-Paul (hand) is active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Pierre-Paul is coming off of a four-tackle performance in Week 12 at Washington, so he might be getting in better game shape after missing the entire first half of the season.
