Jason Pierre-Paul still wearing a neck brace

Bruce Arians was brought out of retirement to help Jameis Winston reach his potential and fix the Buccaneers, and Mike Florio sees the hire either going very well or very poorly.

Jason Pierre-Paul posted a video to Instagram on Tuesday, showing him still wearing a neck brace.

He will have his neck re-evaluated in two months, Greg Auman of reports. The earliest Pierre-Paul will return to the field is October, Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians said last month.

Pierre-Paul fractured a neck vertebra in a one-car accident in May.

“If you woke up this morning, count your blessings,” Pierre-Paul wrote on social media. “We all go through things in life, and if you’re going through something, it will pass. Trust me. Just remember that we [are] blessed to be here and make the best out of every situation.

“Things turn out best for those who make the best out of the way things turn out.”

Pierre-Paul made 12.5 sacks in his first season with the Bucs after arriving from the Giants in a trade.
