Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul missed another practice for the New York Giants Thursday as they prepare to host the 11-2 Seattle Seahawks on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. Pierre-Paul has been sidelined the past two games by a shoulder injury, and his continued absence from practice makes it seem likely he is headed for a third straight week on the sidelines.
Cornerback Corey Webster (ankle) did not practice Thursday after practicing on a limited basis Wednesday, and safety Cooper Taylor missed practice due to the hamstring injury he suffered Sunday vs. the San Diego Chargers.
Cornerback Terrell Thomas (knee) and defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins (quad/shin) were listed as limited in practice.
Whether he should play the rest of the season or not, Pierre-Paul obviously wants to play.

Pierre-Paul wants no part of spending the final weeks of the season on injured reserve.
