Giants FB Henry Hynoski needs knee surgery

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - The New York Giants may have to start looking for a fullback.

Starter Henry Hynoski will have surgery Friday to repair his medial collateral ligament and a chip fracture in his left knee. The three-year veteran was hurt Wednesday on the second play from scrimmage during an 11-on-11 drill in an organized team activity.

``I am going to set my mind to being ready for the first game of the regular season,'' Hynoski said Thursday. ``They said that is not an unrealistic goal, and I will do everything in my power to be ready for the start of the season.''

The Giants also announced Thursday that veteran wide receiver Ramses Barden had re-signed. The third-round draft pick in 2009 became a free agent after last season.

Hynoski was the only fullback on the roster at the workout Wednesday. Veteran tight end Bear Pascoe has played some fullback for New York in recent seasons. Hynoski, who was used mostly as a blocking back for Ahmad Bradshaw in his first two seasons, had five carries for 20 yards last season. He also caught 11 passes for 50 yards and a touchdown in his second season as starter.

The Giants signed Hynoski as an undrafted free agent in 2011. The former Pittsburgh product earned the starting job when Madison Hedgecock failed his physical and was released.

Barden has 29 receptions for 394 yards in his four seasons, but no touchdowns. His best game was a 36-7 win over Carolina last season, when he had nine catches for 138 yards in his only start.

``I'm happy to be back,'' he said. ``This is where I wanted to be and now I'm here. I was out there listening to the calls, getting back into the rhythm of the cadence, enjoying the camaraderie and absorbing everything. I remember everything; I've had four years to soak it all up. I'm happy to be back on the field.

``I feel great. I expect the best.''

A broken ankle in 2010 forced Barden to miss the final seven games and the first seven weeks of the following season.
