Pierre-Paul (knee) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game versus the Broncos.
Pierre-Paul was a full participant in Friday's practice and will aim to keep his sack streak alive, as he's recorded a sack in four straight games -- and has tallied seven total sacks in that span -- dating back to last season. The Broncos will have a new look with Jeff Driskel under center, and he was sacked six times over 63 snaps in Week 2.

Pierre-Paul was able to take the field in some capacity Wednesday, but as evidenced by this news, he could have aggravated the injury.

If Pierre-Paul is sidelined Sunday, Anthony Nelson could be in line to draw the start at outside linebacker.

The veteran underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in late June but has been with the team at practice every step of the way since camp opened.

The veteran pass rusher underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in late June, and at that point it was predicted he'd be ready for the start of training camp.

The Bucs expect their 31-year-old pass rusher to be ready for the start of training camp, entering the first season of a two-year, $27 million contract. Pierre-Paul missed the first six weeks of last season with a neck injury, but he piled up 8.5 sacks over the final 10 games.

With fellow outside linebacker Shaquil Barrett getting a franchise tag, the Bucs are hoping continuity will allow for a reprisal of their success on defense during the second half of the 2019 campaign. Pierre-Paul was a significant part of that equation with 8.5 sacks and 16 QB hits in 10 games after missing the first six weeks of the season due to a neck injury suffered in a car accident.
Pierre-Paul, who compiled four tackles, including two sacks, a pass defensed and a forced fumble in the Week 17 overtime loss to the Falcons, finished the 2019 season with 27 tackles (24 solo), 8.5 sacks, two defensed passes and two forced fumbles across 10 games.
Pierre-Paul defied the odds in 2019, as the start of the season saw him still well within his recovery from a fractured vertebrae suffered in a May 2 automobile accident. The veteran defensive end eventually was able to return to practice in mid-October and made his season debut in Week 8 against the Titans, managing a knee injury later in the season but not missing any more contests than the initial six he sat for to open the campaign. Pierre-Paul finished with a flourish, racking up five of his 8.5 sacks over the final two games. After coming to an agreement with the Buccaneers on voiding the final year of his contract, Pierre-Paul is set to enter unrestricted free agency in March, where he should be a very hot commodity after totaling 21 sacks over the 26 games he played for Tampa in the last two seasons.
Pierre-Paul recorded four tackles, including three sacks, in the Buccaneers' 23-20 loss to the Texans on Saturday.
The veteran defensive end put together a vintage performance after a so-so first eight games of his campaign. Pierre-Paul almost matched his entire sack total of 3.5 for the season at the expense of the Texans, and Saturday's dominant performance was undoubtedly key to giving Pierre-Paul some momentum as he heads back into the open market this coming offseason. The 30-year-old will look to put together a strong finish to a season that began with rehabilitation from a serious neck injury when he faces the Falcons in Week 17.
