Giants’ Henry Hynoski Out With Fractured Shoulder
By Allen Kim
Things are about to get much tougher for embattled RB David Wilson to find running room after FB Henry Hynoski fractured his shoulder in the New York Giants’ Week 3 loss to the Carolina Panthers. The injury occurred in the first quarter of the game, and their offense was completely anemic.
Hynoski is set to undergo more tests tomorrow, but things are looking bleak with his season potentially in jeopardy at this point. Bear Pascoe is likely to fill in at fullback with Hynoski sidelined, and it wouldn’t be surprising if Brandon Jacobs takes some snaps at fullback.
One of the top fullbacks in the league, the Giants already underwhelming run game is going to suffer even more. The Giants only managed to muster up 60 yards in 16 rushing attempts today, and they entered Week 3 with the last-ranked rushing offense.
The Giants offensive line was also manhandled by the Panthers, giving up seven sacks on the day. Perhaps Hynoski’s presence in the backfield could’ve changed that.
The Giants don’t have any balance on offense, as evidenced by their 38-0 shutout against the Panthers. Without the ever-reliable Hynoski to open up running lanes, it gets that much more difficult.
