Two-time Super Bowl champion and three-time Pro Bowler Jason Pierre-Paul is no stranger to injuries. In fact, it was a “serious leg injury” in high school that spurred him to quit basketball and take up football.

On July 4, 2015, Jason Pierre-Paul (aka JPP) made global headlines after a freak fireworks accident blew off a portion of his finger. He’d then have his right index finger fully amputated four days later. The injury and recovery caused him to lose a significant amount of weight going into the 2015-2016 season where he signed a 1-year contract with the Giants.

JPP then moved to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2018 and led the Bucs with 12.5 sacks that season but in 2019 the injuries came back. Jason Pierre-Paul suffered a neck fracture in a single-car accident due to not wearing a seatbelt. He had to sit out the preseason and first 8 weeks of the NFL season.

I’m saying all of this to really illustrate how JPP has experienced some painful injuries in the past which makes his recent tweets even more illuminating. He claims the current torn rotator cuff injury is the most painful injury he’s ever experienced…worse than a firework blowing off a finger!

As a Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan, I cannot wait for him to get healthy because our team looks just a little off compared to last season. But the Bucs are still the NFC favorites, for now.

Fans on Twitter offered words of support to Jason Pierre-Paul after he expressed how much pain he was experiencing at the moment.

Not to be lost in all of this is the fact that the injured Jason Pierre-Paul follows zero people on Twitter. He doesn’t follow the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tom Brady, his agent, nobody. Either he’s content just putting his own thoughts out into the universe or the man’s got a burner hiding somewhere, right?

What’s the point of being on Twitter if you’re not seeing other people’s bad tweets? Speaking of, you can follow me on Twitter at @casspa if you are into bad tweets because mine are as awful as they come.

Through six games played this season, JPP has 2.5 sacks and 21 tackles (13 solo).
