NEWARK, N.J.

Jason Pierre-Paul is back with the New York Giants after agreeing to terms on a contract Tuesday, the team announced. Pierre-Paul missed the start of the season after a July 4 fireworks accident led to the amputation of his right index finger and caused other damage to his right hand. - - - Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano's job is not safe, although reports indicate there is no imminent danger he will be fired by general manager Ryan Grigson.
Jason Pierre-Paul and the New York Giants have agreed to a one-year contract more than three months after the defensive end's right index finger was amputated following a fireworks accident in Florida. Pierre-Paul met with the team over the past two days and was given the OK to play by team doctors. A new contract had to be negotiated because the Giants were not willing to have him sign the franchise tender that was offered before the July 4 accident.
Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is finally back with the New York Giants. The weird saga that started when Pierre-Paul suffered serious injuries to his hand in a July 4 fireworks accident took a major step on Tuesday when Pierre-Paul and the team agreed to a one-year deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport . The two sides worked out a deal all of Tuesday after Pierre-Paul passed his physicals, the report said. Pierre-Paul was given the franchise tag this offseason, and didn't sign it before his fireworks accident hoping for a long-term deal. The accident changed the scope of the contract talks dramatically. Now Pierre-Paul can start working to a return, but that might not happen right away. The New York Daily News said before the contract was finalized that the Giants were hopeful Pierre-Paul could return by Nov. 29, which would put him on the field for the last six weeks of the regular season. The Daily News said that there was some thought Pierre-Paul could play by Nov. 15, but that returning after the Nov. 22 bye week was more realistic. Rapoport said that the Giants will ask the NFL for a two-week roster exemption for Pierre-Paul, who could be practicing on Wednesday. How effective Pierre-Paul can be during the Giants' playoff push remains to be seen. He'll have to adjust to playing with his injuries, which include the loss of at least one finger. But he has been by far the Giants' best pass rusher the past few years. The Giants are second-to-last in the NFL this season with just nine sacks, so whatever Pierre-Paul can provide will be a big plus for New York. There are still many questions involving Pierre-Paul going forward, but at least he's back with his team. - - - - - - - Frank Schwab is the editor of Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Rams placed outside linebacker Alec Ogletree on injured reserve-designated to return, three weeks after he had surgery for a fractured right ankle.
How hot is Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden's seat? Apparently hot enough where Gruden thought losing to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 7 could have cost him his job, via the Associated Press . "Whew. I try not to think about that one," Gruden said at Redskins Park on Monday. "I probably wouldn't be standing up here today." Gruden added that last bit with a chuckle, but his team was really up against it. [ Yahoo Daily Fantasy Football: First place wins $100K in our $600K contest for Week 8 ] The Redskins trailed 24-0 in the first half, 24-7 in the third quarter and 30-24 in the final minute. It took a Herculean effort — seriously — from quarterback Kirk Cousins to bring the team back to its third victory in what has been a trying season in D.C. "It was a terrible start to a football game. It really was. And that's what makes the victory all the more sweeter," Gruden said. "To come back from that whoopin' in that first quarter and put three good quarters of football together and get a comeback victory — the biggest ever in Redskin history — it's awesome." Gruden can feel better about things heading into the Redskins' Week 8 bye, still in a morass of an NFC East race, tied with the Philadelphia Eagles for second place behind the 4-3 New York Giants. The Dallas Cowboys sit in last at 2-4, and every team in the division has at least one loss against East foes. That shows just how volatile things have been and how much a sigh of relief the Buccaneers win appeared to be. Gruden could chuckle Monday, just has Cousins could revel in the victory with an epic postgame celebration . Even with the bye, the good times might not last as long as the Redskins would like. Up next: the currently unbeaten New England Patriots. They Redskins also have a tough road game against the unbeaten Carolina Panthers and finish with three of the final four games on the road. Anything is possible. The Redskins could win the NFC East. They could fade quickly. Cousins and Gruden could be toast. It's always interesting around Redskins Park, and we'll always tune in to see what Daniel Snyder's team will do next. - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.

Eric Decker never actually heard the gunshots. The New York Jets wide receiver remembers being in the school lunchroom when the ''Code Red'' ominously blared over the intercom. As teachers frantically tried to move students to safety, Decker headed to the library with 10 other kids who piled into a closet and locked the door behind them.
And there goes another top-tier tailback.
