After an accident with fireworks on the 4th of July earlier this year, New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul was able to continue his career on the field despite the loss of one of his fingers. While he might have been lucky enough to stay in the game, the same can’t be said about his game in Madden, as he joked in an interview with TMZ.

During the brief interview, Jason Pierre-Paul talks about how his injury isn’t affecting his outlook on life or the sport, and the interviewer even commends him for his tenacity and ability to keep on playing despite the setback. When the subject of Madden came up, however, Jason Pierre-Paul was quick to joke that he can no longer play the game.

Despite everything, he remains undeterred, and it looks like he’s really just happy to be able to play the game again. Sadly, however, the same can’t be said of Madden. Props to Jason Pierre-Paul for having such a great outlook!
