Jason Pierre-Paul- Tampa Bay Buccaneers OLB
JPP returned to the line up against the Miami Dolphins despite a shoulder injury that has been lingering and holding him out of the lineup this year. It was reported after the Bucs dominating 45-17 win over the Dolphins that JPP was also playing with ‘a finger split into two’ but that wasn’t going to stop him from playing. He ended the day with three tackles rotating regularly along the defensive line.
