Officials from the New York Giants, including Ronnie Barnes, head of the GIants' medical staff, made the trip today to get some clarity on the extent and prognosis of Jason Pierre-Paul's injuries resulting from a 4th of July fireworks accident.
But instead of getting new information on Pierre-Paul's the status of Pierre-Paul's hand, Jordan Ranaan of NJ.com has given us a different kind of report.
That's right, adding legal threat to injury, Florida police have launched an investigation into the events surround JPP's, injury as many fireworks are illegal in the state of Florida.
If Coral Springs Police charge JPP with criminal possession of fireworks, as @JordanRaanan said possible, he'd be subject to NFL discipline.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 7, 2015
While this isn't the additional clarity we were all hoping for today, it does offer some indication why the Giants retracted their long-term contract offer.
What started out as some ill-considered Independence Day fun has quickly spiraled into a nightmare for the 26-year-old defensive end.

Coral Springs police determined the incident did not happen in their jurisdiction. JPP could still face charges from another jurisdiction.
JPP not out of the woods legally. Have spoken to a few police departments in FL. Once they determine where indecent occurred, might proceed.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) July 7, 2015
Keep tuned to Big Blue View as we hold our breath on the next update in the saga of JPP.
