BUCS : JPP has fractured neck, may miss '19

JPP has fractured neck, may miss '19
Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul suffered a potentially season-ending fractured neck in a single-car crash last week in South Florida, league sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Tuesday.

Pierre-Paul, 30, will likely need surgery, a source told Schefter. He will be visiting with neck specialists at some point this week to get their opinions, with the hope that a portion of this season can be saved.

"As we stated last week following the news of Jason's auto accident, our immediate concern was for both Jason and his passenger," general manager Jason Licht said in a statement Tuesday. "While Jason was treated and released in South Florida the same day of the accident, we wanted to ensure that our medical team had an opportunity to perform a thorough evaluation here in Tampa, and that process is currently ongoing."

The crash occurred early Thursday morning in Broward County. Pierre-Paul sought medical attention at a local hospital and was released. He was not cited for the crash.

Pierre-Paul hasn't attended any of the voluntary workouts that the Buccaneers have held this offseason under new coach Bruce Arians.

Strange how his career has been blindsided by recklessness. I'm curious to see the results of the crash, if it was his fault or not.

All I really saw was that he wasn’t cited for it and something about how his car hydroplaned. So most likely just an accident rather than recklessness.

The accident occurred, per the Athletic, at about 5 a.m.

Not always true, but usually when someone wrecks between midnight and 6am, there's one or more of (substance abuse, dicking around, falling asleep at the wheel) involved.

eh if you hydroplane, most times its due to recklessness. Driving too fast for conditions is reckless. I learned that 30 years ago while hydroplaning in an armored truck on an Atlanta freeway. Facing oncoming traffic while going backwards at 60 mph will change your driving habits for life :rofl:

Ive got a lot of anger to ration out over the next 4-5 months, and I'm sure as hell not going to dump it out recklessly here in freakin' August.

I agree, but he apparently wasn’t cited for anything. Regardless, at most it sounds like he was driving too fast for the weather rather than being blitzed or something like that.
