Similar to the Bucs’ CJ Wilson, the Giants’ Jason Pierre-Paul lost a finger as result of a fireworks accident. JPP had his right index finger amputated per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

But not only did he lose a finger, but he also suffered a broken thumb on that same hand. Unfortunate turn of event for the defensive end.
On Thursday, NFL Media’s Kimberly Jones reported that Pierre-Paul also has a broken thumb.
Obviously, Pierre-Paul’s ability to function without a finger will be the biggest hurdle for him to clear before returning to the field.
