Oct 31, 2015 11:15 AM

Jason Pierre-Paul thinks he may have become an even better player following his fireworks accident.

"Of course it's going to have a special glove," he said. "I'm missing an index finger"

Pierre-Paul has been one of the NFL's best pass rushers.

"I'm still the same Jason Pierre-Paul," he said. "That hasn't changed. I've probably gotten even better. So you know, I'm ready to play football and help my team win."

Cowboys To Monitor Dez Bryant's Snaps

Oct 30, 2015 1:42 PM

The Dallas Cowboys will monitor the snaps of Dez Bryant if he plays in Week 8 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Bryant has practiced on a limited basis this week after missing the previous five games following surgery to repair a broken right foot.


“Any time a player hasn’t played for in a little while you always want to ease him back into action to a certain extent,” Jason Garrett said. “You can’t ease into action in a play. You need to go full speed on every play. So you just have to monitor how he’s handling the work. With him or any guy you’re always just mindful of that. We have no hard and fast rules. We look at guys, look at the conditions, see how he’s feeling, use your eyes, communicate and we decide what we think is best. We’ll see how he does today. If he comes back, feels good today, we’ll start making the determinations about the weekend.”

Dez Bryant is on track to return to the Dallas Cowboys' lineup in Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.

"He looked good in practice and should do even more tomorrow," said Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones on Wednesday. "It's premature to say he'll play Sunday, but he's on target to play this weekend if this continues."

Bryant is coming back from breaking a bone in his right foot in Week 1.

Bryant seemed to be in an optimistic mood as well following practice, telling reporters, "I had a great day of practice," said Bryant.

Giants To Reexamine Jason Pierre-Paul's Hand

Oct 26, 2015 12:01 PM

Jason Pierre-Paul will have his right hand examined by the New York Giants for the first time since Sept. 7.

Pierre-Paul planned to fly in last week to meet with the Giants, but since the early part of the team's week was compressed due to last week's Monday Night Football game in Philadelphia, the meeting was rescheduled for this week.


Pierre-Paul believes he could play right away if the team would agree to let him. But the Giants are likely to be more cautious, and there's a chance they won't clear him to play for them at all this season.
