New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul reportedly suffered a serious hand injury in a fireworks accident during July 4th weekend.
A report on Sunday night states that Pierre-Paul may have suffered nerve damage along with severe burns to his hand after a July 4th celebration in South Florida went awry.
Furthermore, there is a concern that he may lose a hand in the process.
According to a tweet from Andy Slater of 940 WINZ-AM in Miami, Pierre-Paul was transporting a U-Haul truck filled with fireworks on Saturday night.
The 26-year-old Pierre-Paul posted 12.5 sacks last season. Back in 2011, JPP recorded 16.5 sacks en route to helping New York win Super Bowl XLVI.
