The Daily Grind Video

After damaging his hand during a fireworks mishap on July 4, Jason Pierre-Paul has steered clear of media.

But things changed Tuesday night, when the New York Giants’ defensive end posted his first video to Instagram. The short clip shares JPP’s exercise regime, showing the NFL star pulling a sled filled with weight plates. Even though Pierre-Paul’s index finger was reportedly amputated, the player had an inspirational caption on deck: “Your hard times will lead to the best times of your life. Don’t believe the hype … Be back soon!”

The strategically edited video barely shows his bandaged right hand, but the caption proves JPP has enough faith in God — and his strengthening and conditioning coach — to say he’ll come back this season and help the waning Giants’ defensive line.

Pierre-Paul has yet to sign his franchise tender, and has instead retreated to Florida to get himself into playing shape.
