EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul has reported and met with the New York Giants, two months after injuring his right hand in a July 4 fireworks accident. A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on Monday about the meeting, but Coach Tom Coughlin refused to say much about Pierre-Paul after practice because he had no knowledge that the player had arrived. Coughlin would not rule out Pierre-Paul for the season opener in Dallas on Sunday night — provided the doctors clear him to play and he is fit.
