Henry Hynoski Injury Update: Report -- FB might be ready Week 1

Elsa

The Star-Ledger is reporting that Giants' fullback Henry Hynoski might be able to reach his goal of being in the lineup Week 1.

New York Giants fullback Henry Hynoski said when he had knee surgery in late May that returning for Week 1 against the Dallas Cowboys was "not an unrealistic goal." The Star-Ledger reported Thursday that Hynoski's goal "still seems to be in reach" and that the third-year player "may even be a little ahead of schedule in his rehabilitation."

Hynoski suffered a chip facture of the lateral plateau and an MCL injury when he collided with running back Andre Brown during OTAs.

The injury has caused much speculation about how the Giants would replace the bruising 266-pound fullback if they have to, including a recent rash of stories about possible interest in free-agent fullback Vonta Leach, a three-time Pro Bowler.

For now, the Giants have versatile tight end Bear Pascoe, who has played there before, penciled in at fullback. The ideal scenario, of course, would be for Hynoski to be ready when the season opens. The Star-Ledger report makes it seem like Hynoski might be able to make that happen.
