Giants general manager Jerry Reese says his heart goes out to defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul


EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey — General manager Jerry Reese says the New York defense is going to surprise people this season, even without injured star defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul.

Speaking to reporters for the first time since players reported, Reese refused to say much Sunday about Pierre-Paul, whose status for the season is in question after injuring his right hand in a fireworks incident on July 4 in Florida.

The Giants have not been allowed to examine the injury. Their contact with the 26-year-old whom they designated a franchise player earlier this year also has been limited.

Reese said his heart goes out to Pierre-Paul after the traumatic, life-changing accident, and he wishes him nothing but the best. He would not comment when asked about him playing this season.
