NEW YORK — New York Giants’ Jason Pierre-Paul underwent surgery Wednesday to repair a hernia and injured groin, most likely ending his regular season.

Pierre-Paul posted a photo of him in the hospital on Instagram Wednesday morning. The defensive end suffered a groin injury during the Giants’ game in Pittsburgh on Sunday.

The player is expected to be out six weeks for recovery, taking him out for the rest of the regular season until the conference championship round, ESPN reported.

Pierre-Paul was hurt on a screen pass late in the first half. He walked slowly to the locker room but did not appear limping, but was ruled out for the rest of the game in the second half.

The Giants got a sack from Olivier Vernon on the play after Pierre-Paul left the game.
