Jason Pierre-Paul has answered his critics who say he won't be the same player for the New York Giants once he returns, with a humorous tweet.

The defensive end did not take part in any preseason training camps or appeared in any games so far for the Giants because of an injury he picked up during the offseason in a fireworks incident.

While celebrating the Fourth of July, Pierre-Paul blew off his finger off accidently, possibly throwing his whole NFL career into jeopardy.

When he finally met with the Giants for the first time since the incident, they evaluated his hand as being in a worse state than what they expected.

Still, the Pro Bowler is looking at the lighter side of the situation, and questioning why a lot of people think he will be incapable of playing the same way he once did for the NFC East organisation.

While Pierre-Paul is merely trying to view this accident in a positive way, it is still an unknown factor if he will return to be the same player he once was.

The Giants were impressed with his physical condition, apart from the injured hand, when he met them last week, so there shouldn't be any problems with rushing to the quarterback in game situations. 

However, the sheer effects of the injury have caused the Giants to take a step back, retract their original $60 million contract offer, and question the Pro Bowler's long-term future with the franchise.

His video on Instagram suggest he is ready for football, but at the moment, the Giants just don't share the same confidence.
