'Jason Pierre-Paul' photo (c) 2012, Mike Morbeck - license: Getting overshadowed by some of the big storylines right now is some good news for the New York Giants. After sharing how good he felt both physically and mentally, Big Blue defensive captain Justin Tuck told ESPN New York that his teammate and good friend Jason Pierre-Paul is feeling good after undergoing back surgery.

"I speak to him all the time," Tuck said. "[He's] doing well."

Tuck also said he's not the only one hearing the positive news; others have heard the same. He's also been around to see Pierre-Paul work on his rehabilitation.

"Everybody is [also] telling me he is doing well," Tuck said. "I have seen him walking around and doing his rehab stuff."

Tuck continued saying he and Pierre-Paul feel that he will be ready by the time the first game rolls around, a goal some thought to be unrealistic.

"He does [and] I expect him back, too," Tuck said. "He is Superman."

Hopefully "Superman" will return healthy enough to recoup his super-human form from the 2011 season that he followed with a disappointing campaign in 2012, likely due to his bad back.
