New York Giants stud defensive end, and athletic freak of nature, Jason Pierre-Paul, will undergo back surgery today in California. Dr. Robert Watkins will be preforming the procedure, and is the same doctor who will preform back surgery on Tom Brady’s favorite target, and New England Patriots’ favorite party boy/tight end, Rob Gronkowski later this month.
The 6-5, 278 pound, Pierre-Paul, a former first round pick, suffered through back pain during the 2012 season, but managed to play through the pain in hopes to avoid ending his season early. Pierre-Paul finished the Giants season out, but his production took a huge dip, only recording 6.5 sacks, instead of the 16.5 he amassed one season prior.
The Giants defensive centerpiece hopes to be ready for the Giants season opener against the rival Dallas Cowboys on September 8th.
