New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul has suggested that his missing index finger 'never got him a sack' in his NFL career.
The 26-year-old lost his right index finger and part of his thumb in a fireworks accident back in July, and some critics believe that the injury will have an effect on his play on the field.
However, the Giants player tweeted:
I can't think of the last time my index finger got me a sack 😉— iamjasonpierrepaul (@UDWJPP) September 17, 2015
A picture of the injury was released yesterday by Fox Sports:
