Buccaneers outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on Friday morning. The pass rusher should be ready to go by the time training camp rolls around.
JPP is certainly not new to offseason injuries and surgeries. This one, all things considered, is pretty minor in the grand scheme of things.
Via Tampa Bay Times:
The Bucs outside linebacker underwent arthroscopic knee surgery to clean up some cartilage that was causing discomfort when working out and should recover in three to four weeks. That means Pierre-Paul likely won’t miss much, if any, training camp, which is scheduled for July 28. Pierre-Paul, who signed a two-year, $25 million contract with the Bucs in March after recording 8.5 sacks in 10 games last season, posted a video of himself preparing for knee surgery on Snapchat on Friday morning.
JPP had a very good season in just 10 games. He has a lot of reasons to want to be as healthy as he can when the season starts. There are thoughts of a Super Bowl run in Tampa this year.
