Hopefully the cart was more precautionary then anything else. Henry was the 2nd best FB in the NFC last year IMO, I hope he is OK. Bear does a good job when he needs to fill in but I would not look forward to him being our starter indefinitely.

I think back to Hixon's first ACL tearing when he was simply running on the new stadium field. You just never know and contact doesn't always play a part.

I hear ya but is it necessary for one of the top 2 or 3 Fullbacks in the NFL to participate in this nonsense? Put a scrub in there instead. Plenty of the players who are at OTA's who are supposedly healthy are not participating today and won't for the duration. Your key veteran guys do not need to be out there for this nonsense.

You know, we complain during the season when basic tackles and blocks are missed. The CBA has reduced practices to almost a trickle in terms of contact. How are they supposed to get into "football shape"? No one wants to see injuries, but the other side of the coin is poorly prepared players.

Don't disagree, these OTA's however have no contact btw so these are not for football shape. Imho, it's those who can't tackle and can't block that should practice the most. Hynoski doesn't fall into that category. Mini-camp, yes, training camp, yes, some pre-season action, yes but May OTA's? No friggin' way!

I don't think the problem is OTA's. The problem might the the kinds of stretching and conditioning these guys do during the off season. This is no-contact practice. Guys should be streching at least 30-45 minutes before running any kind of drills.

Let's see exactly what he injured. But it sounds like some kind of muscle or tendon.

So glad you're not the coach..So you wouldn't be so upset if it happened in Mini Camp? Injuries happen..whether its offseason, ota's or mini camp..It's a bummer to see a player go down but sometimes it's unavoidable. And to have people not practice just because it's OTA's because they are talented is an idiotic statement.

If you aren't going to put your healthy starters on the field what's the point? Nicks, Snee, Baas, TT, and a few others are sitting on the sideliens because they are all coming off injuries. Part of this is to get back to fundamentals which is a necessary part of preparation.

There are certain players that these OTA's are just not necessary for particularly ones that have no depth behind them with no roster spots currently available and are basically the best at their position in the NFL! If it happened in Mini-Camp I'd be less annoyed because yes these guys need to get into shape but now in non-contact OTA's? Totally unnecessary!

It's the coaches job to decide what is the best thing for their player regardless if the player is itching to get out there because that's his job and passion. I am overjoyed Hynoski is this dedicated. We all know he is, the coaches know he is, the front office knows he is. His time here has already demonstrated this. Just him offering to be out there is enough to prove the guy's guts, passion and dedication but when the coach knows this guy is the best in the NFL at his position practically you need to be smart and perhaps play it safer with this particular guy than with some one else.

It sounds like it is a knee so you can guarantee he will not see the field for months. All that precious practice time you guys want to see is now eliminated because at a non-contact OTA the best FB in the league wanted to be out there because he's passionate and it's his job.:rolleyes:

I hear but dont agree....these guys are paid to play the game of football. He could easily get hurt the first day of camp, first game of the season, etc. Doesnt matter. Injuries happen. Hell he could get hurt in the weight room for that matter. Inuries are part of it.

Well players want to get better...and the only way that happens is practicing..And if Hynoski injures himself while trying to make himself better, so be it. I would be more worried about players who want to sit out to avoid injury.

Of course the fact that he is showing this level of dedication is reassuring and better than the alternative as you pointed out but that is all the coach should need to see before deciding the safer route would be to acknowledge that this guy is pretty much the best FB in the NFL and can sit as he has no one behind him other than Pascoe who is a TE and no available spots to add anyone right now.

The only reason we would need to add a person is if hyno was seriously injured to the point of the season being in doubt. In that case, he would be IR'd and *poof* just like that we have a roster spot.

Practice is part of the game. Injuries are part of the game. Complaining about practices and injuries is not part of the game.

Fair enough. I just think he is too valuable to risk especially since it sounds like the head coach really wants to run the ball and then run the ball some more. They need this guy big time to accomplish this. End of the day though, it is what it is.

So if a guys value outweighs the need to practice...Why is Eli Manning practicing? We have no quality depth behind him..he's our franchise QB...So I guess your right...Maybe he shouldn't practice either!

Not a fair comparison. QB's have a lot more to concern themselves with than a FB does and need as much practce time as humanly possible.

Fullback Henry Hynoski suffered an apparent knee injury and wide receivers Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz were no-shows at the Timex Performance Center.

Cruz's absence was expected. Nicks' was not.

Hynoski, who has an understated but vital role in the offense, went down on the second play of practice. He took a hand-off from quarterback Eli Manning and went down in a heap in the backfield. There was no contact." Read more...

I agree. This has happened before to me with rugby. It happens every so often. If the knee hit squarely on the knee and not the side, he should be okay I think. I wasn't the injured person, so I really dont know. Just saying from experience. Its when twisting of the knee does it become serious.

And Hyno is the one who gets hurt? Seriously?

This makes me hope the injury isn't too serious...

Nicks was a no-show, though, and that left Giants coach Tom Coughlin both unaware of the reason for Nicks’ absence and unhappy about it.

Some things don't need to be said :cool:

lol. Cant say I blame him. I wonder why Nicks didnt show. All that money being talked about to Cruz must have pressed the jealous/envy button.

I know he's not required to be there, but he should be with the team. Even if he's just on a stationary bike.

Agreed. You have to like what he showed last season even with our Jekyll and Hyde run game. Him and Wilson can be a nice 1-2 punch ala Jacobs and Bradshaw in their primes.

However, we need Hyno to lead the charge! Pascoe is a serviceable FB, but I always thought his height made it difficult for him to lead block as quicker defenders can outmaneuver him due to his lack of athletic ability.

Man, but I'm still so surprised that Brown's knee held up -- over Hyno's nonetheless.

Actually, the more Cruz gets, the better for Nicks if he puts in a full season with great numbers.

Except for the small fact that if we overpay Cruz we won't be able to afford Nicks. Nicks isn't envious of Cruz, he's smart enough to understand Cruz's numbers go down when he isn't at 100% and will use that as leverage for his contract. Both the Giants and him know he deserves more money than Cruz, I just hope it plays out that way.

For all I know he could just be posturing for a new contract.

two conflicting stories now about whether or not there was contact. We'll just have to wait and see.

As for some of the OTA comments... How would any coach decide who should be out there and who shouldn't? Right off the bat you are creating a divided locker room of priviledged players and those that aren't. Injuries can happen any time you can't live your life scared. If this was indeed without any contact, then there may have been an issue brewing already.

Hopefully Nicks stays as far awayas possible until training camp.

That simply isn't true. First off, Reese won't "overpay" for anyone. Second, the CAP situation improves beyond 2013 and Reese signing FAs to one year deals for this season helps that situation. Reese isn't negotiating with Cruz in a vacuum. He knows how far they can go and won't go any farther.

It is not hard to do. There are arguments that can be made for not practicing Hynoski in non-contact OTA's. Go back through the thread to see my reasons. No way the locker room will be divided if Hynoski is held out of OTA's. Coughlin is a two-time Super Bowl championship coach and if the locker room divides over something like that then there are a bunch of cry-babies on this team.

So injuries starts yet again, this time even earlier than usual. I predict that by the time the season starts, we'll have 7 starters out due to injury with 2 of them being for the entire season.

And at that time when I'm yet again complaining about the inordinate amount of injuries that we have, someone else will invariably say that all teams suffer injuries, and I will reply that, no, no other single team suffers the gargantuan amount of injuries that we suffer year in and year out. The yearly injuries with the Giants, and my moaning and groaning of those injuries, and someone else making the false claim that other teams suffer the same amount of injuries are as assured as death and taxes.

I've never seen another professional sports organization more injury prone than the NY football Giants.
