The first closeup photos of Jason Pierre-Paul's injured hand were revealed, and they are as cringeworthy as you'd expect.
The New York Daily News obtained photos of the two-time Pro Bowler that show the extent to which his index finger is missing and his bandaged right thumb.

JPP showed his hand before, in an Instagram video of him working out, but there were no closeups of his hands.
But the Daily News' snaps now give the clearest look at how hurt the Giants defensive end is.
Despite his injury, Pierre-Paul remains defiant of the notion he can't play up to his usual standards.
