Pierre-Paul (shoulder) will play Sunday against the 49ers, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pierre-Paul has been inconsistent this season, but his average of 4.5 tackles per game is decent for a defensive end. Still, fantasy owners would likely appreciate a surge of sacks from Pierre-Paul, and he'll have a good opportunity to do that against 49ers' QB C.J. Beathard, who has been sacked on nine percent of his dropbacks, ranking 28th in the league.

Pierre-Paul had one of the best games of his career Sunday night with three sacks, seven solo tackles and an assist against the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Pierre-Paul is completely healthy and apparently unhampered by his damaged hand. He's an excellent IDP defensive lineman due to his ability to rack up tackles as well as sacks.

Pierre-Paul (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Pierre-Paul will be cleared to take the field in Week 5, though it's uncertain if he'll be in line for a full slate of snaps while he manages the shoulder injury. Even at less than 100 percent health, Pierre-Paul is still capable of getting after the passer better than most on the Giants roster, so his availability in any capacity is certainly welcome.

Pierre-Paul (shoulder) is expected to play Sunday in the Giants' game against the Chargers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Having Pierre-Paul available for the Week 5 matchup will take on more importance than usual for the Giants, who are unlikely to have fellow defensive end Olivier Vernon (ankle) on hand to aid the team's pass rush. Assuming he's able to steer clear of any setbacks during pregame warmups, Pierre-Paul should be in store for another healthy snap count as he attempts to make life difficult for Philip Rivers and the Chargers' attack.

Pierre-Paul (knee/shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pierre-Paul reported Thursday that he would be able to play Sunday, but he needs to wait until Sunday to earn the full medical clearance. The 28-year-old defensive end has 17 tackles (10 solo) and 1.5 sacks this season, and he'll be called upon to increase his pass-rushing presence if he's able to suit up this week.

Pierre-Paul (shoulder) did not practice Thursday but said he will play in Sunday's game against the Chargers, Kimberly Jones of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pierre-Paul has not practiced either of the last two days, but the defensive end remains confident that he'll be on the field for Sunday's contest. He'll continue to be evaluated over the next couple of days before a final decision is made, so consider Pierre-Paul a game-time decision until an official update is provided.

Pierre-Paul was held out of practice Wednesday with knee and shoulder injuries, Tom Rock of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fellow starting defensive end Olivier Vernon (ankle) was also absent from the Giants' team session, though unlike Pierre-Paul, he was able to do some work on the side with team trainers. There wasn't any indication that Pierre-Paul was banged up in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers, but it appears his status for the Giants' Week 5 tilt with the Chargers could be on murky ground. Pierre-Paul has amassed 17 tackles and 1.5 sacks through the Giants' first four contests.

Pierre-Paul tallied a half-sack in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers to go along with four tackles (three solo).

EDGE Analysis

Pierre-Paul combined with teammate Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie late in the third quarter to take down Jameis Winston on a third-and-ten. The veteran defensive end now has 1.5 sacks on the season. He was one of three Giants defenders to see all 64 snaps, and figures to continue seeing a heavy workload going forward.

Pierre-Paul (groin) played in Monday's preseason contest against the Browns, Dan Duggan of NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pierre-Paul had a great season last year despite being hindered by a finger injury from a firework accident. He posted 53 tackles, seven sacks, eight blocked passes and three forced fumbles in 2016. On Monday, posted two tackles and an interception and proved he'll be ready for Week 1.
