Giants rookie DE Pierre-Paul not worried about another back flare-up :huh:

Associated Press

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Rookie defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul looked spent roughly 10 minutes into the second day of a New York Giants minicamp.

That's putting it politely, too.

Pierre-Paul had all the appearances of sucking wind. His hands were clasped above his head. His No. 90 blue jersey was drenched with sweat, and it was fairly obvious that Pierre-Paul, the 15th overall pick in last week's NFL draft, was having a problem on a steamy Saturday morning.

A minute or two later, the former South Florida star was on all fours on the grass, with trainers huddling over him.

While it looked like dehydration, it wasn't. Spray from an aerosol can was soon applied to Pierre-Paul's back, along with what seemed to be a white 5x7 pad, and all the while, he was telling his coaches that he wasn't out of shape.

Instead, it was his annual back problem. It happens every time Pierre-Paul gets away from football, then starts playing again.

"My back just started hurting," Pierre-Paul said after eating lunch. "It is a conditioning thing. It did that at South Florida, too, where I got used to it. It always does the same thing around this time. I don't know for what reason."

Pierre-Paul described the problem as a pinch in his lower back, adding that it hurt most when he got into a three-point stance on the line. As soon as he stood up, the pain went away.

The back didn't spasm, Pierre-Paul said, and it usually takes between four days and a week for his body to adjust to playing football again. Then the pain subsides.

Although Pierre-Paul associated the back problem with conditioning, he said it has nothing to do with his stamina.

"I'm not out of shape," he said. "I'm not out of shape. I feel like I'm in good shape right now. The fact that I was out there bending down and stuff, it wasn't that I was out of shape. I kept on telling coach that. I'm not out of shape now. I feel like I'm in great shape. It's just my back was just killing me."

Pierre-Paul said he trained in Miami and Tampa, Fla., before the draft and intends to return to Tampa after the Giants' minicamp ends Saturday. He insists he'll be ready for next month's minicamp and the start of the regular training camp in late July.

"I know my body," Pierre-Paul said. "I see a lot of guys running and tiring. It wasn't that. It was my lower back that was hurting."

....and there were people here wanting to grab this guy oh boy lol..poor Giants they get a hurt Boley now hurt JPP............ :mellow: ......4GIFsDotCom10.gif

JPP, if you're not out of shape, why do you have a sweat map of South America on the front of your jersey and Africa on your back? The little issue of being down on all fours heaving your guts out doesn't help your case either!

"My back got a little tight!"

Shhhhh The Giants got robbed lol, just think if they did not take JPP, they probaly would have taken the Spooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnn Man!! I think the Giants are going down hill, with the Cowboys improvement, Eagles had a great draft, and the Redskins new coach and QB........sounds like the basement for the Giants.
