Jason Pierre Paul reported to have suffered a potentially season-ending neck injury in a single-car crash (per ESPN).
While we wish JPP the best in his recovery, looking at it from a fantasy perspective: it's a blow to the Buccs. He was going to be a big part of their 2019 defense. We wish him well.
UPDATE: According to an NFL.com article from May 10, JPP appears to be taking the non-surgical route.
NFL Network's Tom Pelissero added via sources that the plan is to recheck JPP's vertebra at the four-month mark after three independent doctors concurred it'll heal on its own. His expected timeline is 5-6 months, if not sooner, which could mean Pierre-Paul returns in October or November.
"We've got our fingers crossed and praying for him," Bucs coach Bruce Arians told reporters earlier Friday, via Greg Auman of The Athletic. "Very unfortunate and all we can do is pray and hope for the best, and hope it's one of those five- or six-month things and go from there."
