Giants Roster Breakdown: Henry Hynoski

Henry Hynoski - Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

Henry Hynoski's knee injury might make the Giants and others realize just how valuable Hynoski is to the team's offense.

Henry Hynoski emerged as an important member of the New York Giants offense in 2012. How important? Now that Hynoski's status is in doubt due to a knee injury there has been lots of chatter about whether or not the Giants should try to bring in Vonta Leach, a three-time All-Pro considered the top fullback in the game, to replace him. Let's spotlight Hynoski as we continue looking at the 90-man roster the Giants will bring to training camp.

2012 Season In Review

Hynoski, in his second season as an undrafted free agent from Pittsburgh, emerged as one of the NFL's premier fullbacks. The 6-foot-1, 266-pound Hynocerous developed into a devastating run blocker (+7.6 per PFF) and began finding the ball in his hands a bit more often. He caught 12 passes for 83 yards and got the first five carries of his NFL career, gaining 20 yards. He also got to do this for the first time:


2013 Outlook

Cloudy. That's the best word I can think of. We should be celebrating Hynoski turning into a Pro Bowl, and possibly All-Pro, caliber fullback in 2013. Instead, following an unfortunate knee injury suffered during OTAs there are questions about when Hynoski will be available and lots of chatter about Leach.

Hynoski is targeting a Week 1 return for the opener vs. the Dallas Cowboys. Whether or not that will happen remains to be seen.
