Pierre-Paul underwent offseason surgery on his groin and abdomen to repair multiple injuries, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pierre-Paul is feeling better after recent surgery addressed four lingering injuries, but he remains uncertain about when he'll return to football activities. There's a chance he won't be ready in time for training camp, while the Giants may elect to proceed cautiously with their veteran defensive end since he's played just 20 total games throughout the past two seasons.

Pierre-Paul (groin) re-signed Friday with the Giants on a four-year contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Pierre-Paul's long-term contract is expected to pay around $17 million annually, and includes $54 million guaranteed. The Giants had previously slapped the franchise tag on the defensive end, who after missing much of the 2015 season while recovering from a fireworks accident, came back with a dominant 2016 campaign. He notched seven sacks in 12 games to lead the team before suffering a season-ending groin injury in Week 13. It's expected that the defensive end will be back to full strength by the start of training camp, and as he enters his age-28 season, he should have at least a couple years of elite-level production left in him.

Pierre-Paul (groin) has received the Giants' franchise tag, NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pierre-Paul's designation as New York's franchise player is expected to officially appear in Tuesday's transaction log, but in making the move, the Giants have taken a significant step in securing him for the future. Considering JPP, who played on a one-year, $10 million deal this past season, has made it clear he won't sign the $17 million tender that coincides with him being tagged, the Giants' decision to still apply that designation seems to indicate their optimism over reaching a long-term extension with him prior to the July 15 deadline. As a result, there's likely further contract news to come regarding the 28-year-old, who posted 53 tackles and seven sacks in 12 games played during the 2016 campaign.

Pierre-Paul and the Giants are expected to pick up talks over a contract extension in the near future, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pierre-Paul is currently slated to hit free agency next month, but in releasing wide receiver Victor Cruz and running back Rashad Jennings on Monday, the Giants freed salary-cap room to ensure they're equipped to meet JPP's desires and keep him off the open market. With that end in mind, the team is anticipated to escalate talks with Pierre-Paul in the coming days and weeks, with a $12 million-per-year contract reportedly a realistic figure for striking a deal. After playing just eight games in 2015 following a notorious fireworks accident, Pierre-Paul registered 53 tackles and seven sacks while defending eight passes in 12 appearances this past season.

Pierre-Paul (groin) is unlikely to be ready for the Giants' wild card game in Green Bay, ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

His initial timetable after groin surgery put his return in the next couple weeks, so if all goes well he could be back in the divisional round or the NFC championship game should the Giants make it that far. He hasn't yet been ruled out for this week's game, but he hasn't practiced yet and would be a long shot to play.

Pierre-Paul (sports hernia) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Pierre-Paul was initially ruled out for six weeks after undergoing surgery to repair his sports hernia four weeks ago. He'll need a good week of recovery in order to have a chance at playing in the Giants' wildcard playoff game next week. Kerry Wynn will continue to start at defensive end opposite Olivier Vernon while Pierre-Paul is out.

Pierre-Paul will miss at least six weeks after surgery to repair a hernia, Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pierre-Paul sustained the ailment in Sunday's loss at Pittsburgh and didn't return. Pierre-Paul had 5.5 sacks in his last three games, so this is a big loss for the Giants defense.

Pierre-Paul seems poised to miss "a few weeks" due to a groin injury, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pierre-Paul sustained the ailment in Sunday's loss at Pittsburgh and didn't return. On Monday, he was slated for an MRI, which may have revealed something sinister due to Tuesday's visit to Philadelphia-based surgeon Williams Meyers, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network. If a procedure is recommended, Pierre-Paul would clearly be sidelined in the short term, but he may be anyway, as Jonathan Casillas told Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com on Tuesday that Pierre-Paul's "presence will be missed." As a result, don't expect the pass rusher to suit up for Sunday's night's showdown with the Cowboys.
