The Giants will reduce Jason Pierre-Paul's playing time by about 10 snaps when Justin Tuck returns from injury.

Tuck is expected to return next Sunday against Miami, so look for Pierre-Paul's playing time to be reduced from 55-60 snaps to between 40 and 45 snaps that day.

Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell said coaches have noticed that Pierre-Paul is winded late in games. So, Fewell hopes the lighter load will keep Pierre-Paul fresh going forward.

Pierre-Paul has 7.5 sacks and one forced fumble in six games.

Also, Fewell envisions using a package with all of the Giants pass rushers (Tuck, Pierre-Paul, Osi Umenyiora, Mathias Kiwanuka) on the field at the same time when Tuck returns.
