Jason Pierre-Paul Bloody Hospital Pic Day After Fireworks Accident

1/25/2016 10:12 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0125-jpp-instagram-01Jason Pierre-Paul just posted a photo that was taken at his hospital bedside on July 5th -- one day after the fireworks accident that blew up his hand. 

JPP wrote, "July 5th I remember."

In the pic, you can see the NY Giants star elevating his right arm -- which is heavily wrapped up and red from the bleeding. You can also see blood on his hospital gown. 

Miraculously, JPP not only recovered from the injury -- but eventually got back on the field and played with the Giants ... turning out a pretty impressive performance considering the circumstances. 

In fact, the last time we spoke with JPP, he was in such good spirits about his situation -- he even joked about not being able to play video games anymore. 

Tom Coughlin Going Out Like The G.O.A.T.

1/6/2016 7:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Yeah, Tom Coughlin got canned, but he's leaving with something almost no other NY Giants coach has ... according to U.S. Congressman Peter T. King

When we got the distinguished gentleman from NY we had to ask what he thought about NY's coaching vacancy. King's sure the G-Men will easily land a new leader easily, and he's also sure Coughlin's "gonna go down in history as one of the top 2 Giant coaches."

So, why'd he get fired? King offers an explanation in the clip.

What he doesn't say is ... who's #1, if TC's #2. We're guessing he's thinking Bill Parcells, but truth is -- he and Coughlin have identical playoff records (with the Giants) and same # of Super Bowl rings.

Prince Amukamara We Have Dance Battles ... In Giants Locker Room

12/1/2015 7:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The NY Giants locker room is like the set of "You Got Served" and "8 Mile" wrapped into one -- with players challenging each other to dance and rap battles ... so says cornerback Prince Amukamara

He's not joking ... Prince says it gets pretty crazy in there ... and when it comes to dance skills, P.A. tells us there's one guy who's "hands down" the best in the league. 

As for rap skills, Prince says 3 guys stand out ... Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Odell Beckham Jr. and Victor Cruz

Question is ... will they ever take their skills public?? God we hope so.

Philadelphia Police Giants Jersey On Rocky Statue 'Crime Against Humanity'

10/19/2015 3:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1019-rocky-statue-phili-police-INSTAGRAM-01WARNING -- Whoever put the NY Giants jersey on Philly's famous Rocky Balboa statue better watch his/her ass ... 'cause the Philly PD is calling the situation a "CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY!" 

Ok, so there's no statewide manhunt for the perp or anything like that ... but people in Philly were FUMING after some G-Men fan trolled the city before tonight's Eagles vs. Giants game.  

We spoke to the Philadelphia Police Dept. about the situation and the public affairs office told us, "We are aware. There's no video, no surveillance, where we could actively search for who did this."

On whether it was a crime, we were told -- "I'm not sure it's a crime. It's a crime against humanity!" 

"As far as us actively investigating, no one has reported it. We're not treating it like a crime. If they wrote on it, spray painted it, that'd be a different story."

Now, it's up to Chip Kelly to avenge the city ... no pressure. 

Jason Pierre Paul Thumbs Nose At Critics ... I Can Still Lift Weights!

9/22/2015 7:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

7-fingered bench press? No problem. 

After critics said Jason Pierre Paul's disfigured hand would be a huge hurdle when it comes to weight training, the NY Giants star hit the gym ... to prove he can still lift weights, despite missing digits. 

JPP busted out a set of bench presses -- with a towel in his right hand to stabilize the bar.  

It's the second time Jason's posted training footage -- in an effort to prove he can still be effective in the NFL after seriously damaging his hand in a fireworks accident

You convinced? 

Jason Pierre-Paul No Finger, No Problem ... BACK IN THE GYM!!

9/15/2015 6:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Giants fans looking for a boost, look no further than this video of Jason Pierre-Paul -- ON HIS GRIND, in the gym, and apparently ... ready to bounce back from his horrific hand injury.

The G-Men's former all-pro defensive end posted a video of himself running sprints with a sled strapped to his waist. Dude's hauling weight too ... about 270 pounds!

It's the first time JPP's been seen without a huge cast on his hand since 4th of July weekend, when he blew off at least one finger from his right hand in a firework accident. Hard to tell from the video if he's still sporting any bandages.

So, does this mean Jason's on the verge of a comeback? In the post he says, "God can turn any situation around for the better. Your hard times will lead to the best times of your life. Don't believe the hype ... Be back soon! #90PC #ImAFighter #PutMeInCoach" 

And every Giants fan said, "Amen!"  Especially after Sunday night's disaster.

Jason Pierre Paul Kept Injury On the Low ... No Cops, No 911

7/6/2015 9:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0705-jason-pierre-paul-tmz-02

Seems Jason Pierre-Paul went to painful lengths to keep his fireworks injury under the radar ... NOT calling emergency services after the mishap ... law enforcement tells TMZ Sports

As we previously reported, the NY Giants superstar injured his hand during a 4th of July fireworks accident at a home in Broward County, Florida.  

But get this ... when we called law enforcement officials in Coral Springs, Pompano Beach and Fort Lauderdale -- none of them had any record of ANY incident involving JPP. Neither did any Fire Department in the area. 

In fact, one law enforcement source tells us everyone is aware of the incident ... but there has been no "formal report" was ever made. 

So, what does it mean? It could mean that Jason's injury was not as bad as first reported and he didn't feel the need to call for emergency medical assistance. 

Then again, it could also mean the injury WAS horrific ... and JPP was willing to suck up the pain and seek medical attention to limit the amount of people who truly knew the extent of his injuries. 

We've placed several calls to JPP and his people -- so far, no word back.

0626-joe-avianne-royal-collection-charm-INSTAGRAM-01New York Giants linebacker J.T. Thomas believes in the "Treat Yo Self" mentality ... because after he inked his new $12 MILLION contract ... he picked up $55k in brand new bling ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Thomas hit up Avianne and Co. in NYC -- and scored himself an 18 karat gold Cuban link chain for $35k. 

And because he didn't want that chain to get lonely, he got a 2nd piece ... a 25 karat ruby, surrounded by diamonds ... which ran him another $20k. 

Tom Haverford would be proud ...

Odell Beckham Jr. Spikes Gronk... Wins Madden Cover

5/13/2015 4:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0513-madden-16-cover-2016-01Odell Beckham Jr. just made the biggest catch of the NFL off-season ... snatching the "Madden 16" cover right out of the hands of fellow finalist Rob Gronkowski.

Beckham Jr. and Gronk beat out a bunch of other NFL studs ... like the Cardinals' Patrick Peterson and Steelers wideout Antonio Brown ... to become the last two dudes standing on Madden island.

Fan votes determined the final winner, and Odell took it home with a super narrow 52.5% of the votes -- but arguably Gronk is the real winner here.

There's a little thing known as the Madden curse ... and the Giants star is now susceptible to the same fate suffered by Garrison Hearst, Peyton HillisShaun Alexander, Vince Young, and bunch more.

Even last year's cover guy -- Richard Sherman ... jacked up his elbow and lost the Super Bowl.

Ummm ... congrats, Odell?

We asked Giants co-owner Steve Tisch last week about OBJ possibly getting the honor (?) -- he was less than thrilled.
