Henry Hynoski carted off with knee injury during Giants OTAs

Despite a roll back in the amount of offseason work and the amount of contact allowed during OTAs as dictated by the new collective bargaining agreement, the past couple weeks have already produced a handful of serious injuries.

The San Francisco 49ers lost wide receiver Michael Crabtree to a torn Achilles on Tuesday. Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Greg Scruggs tore his ACL during routine drills prior to the NFL Draft and San Diego Chargers linebacker Melvin Ingram tore his ACL as well.. Now New York Giants fullback Henry Hynoski is the next up to be dealt a potentially serious blow.

According to Dave Hutchinson of the Newark Star-Ledger, Hynoski injured his left knee during the Giants first OTA workout on Wednesday and will undergo an MRI to determine the extent of the injury.

Hynoski collided with running back Andre Brown and fell to the turf during a full team drill before being carted off the field.

“He kind of got (his leg rolled up on) and so we are taking a look at that,” head coach Tom Coughlin said. “I said a few prayers and I’ll continue until I hear what it is.”

Hynoski appeared in all 16 games for the Giants last season. He carried the ball five times for 20 yards and caught 11 passes for 50 yards and a touchdown. Tight end Bear Pascoe will likely pick up the duty in the backfield if Hynoski is going to miss a significant portion of time.

    The human body wasn’t designed to be as big and as fast as we are today. Things like this are simply more common than they ever were before. Just part of the game now.

    This is getting ridiculous. Something is not right regarding OTA’s. You run into someone inadvertently and this happens.

    I’m sure I speak for all Giants fans when I say that we love the Hynocerous. This injury really sucks.

    60% of all injuries occur in practice. This year likely isn’t any different than any other except for the fact that more well known players are getting hurt.

    It is unfortunate, but it is a part of sports.

    Youknowwhats……

    Skins and Girls cheated and got caught. Pretty classy to make fun of an individual’s injury. Maybe it’s karma for you that the Skins and Girls haven’t won anything meaningful in year.

    Not to worry young Henry, Eli will get Lord Peyton to touch thy knee and all shall be healed
