BREAKING: Jason Pierre-Paul’s Season & Possible Career Over After Single-Car Accident
Last week, a scary report surfaced that stated Jason Pierre-Paul was involved in an accident and had to be rushed to the hospital.
He was said to be “doing fine” after being released from the hospital Thursday evening.
Everything changed drastically this week when ESPN’s Adam Schefter stated JPP’s entire 2019 season is in doubt because he suffered a fractured neck in that accident.
The Bucs released the following statement after the incident:
“We have been informed that Jason was involved in a one-car accident early this morning in South Florida in which he was not cited. We know that he was evaluated at a local hospital and has since been released. Our immediate concern is for the safety and well-being of Jason and his passenger. We have been in contact with Jason and will be getting him further evaluated by our medical staff in the near future.”
One year after signing a four-year, $62 million extension, Paul was traded from the New York Giants to the Buccaneers in March 2018. He had 12.5 sacks, 20 quarterback hits and 16 tackles for loss in 16 games in 2018, his highest marks since 2014.
