New York Giants Place FB Henry Hynoski on Injured Reserve; Sign FB John Conner: The Giants placed FB Henry Hynoski (fractured shoulder) on season-ending Injured Reserve on Wednesday.

To fill Hynoski’s vacant roster spot, the Giants signed FB John Connor, who has played with the New York Jets and Cincinnati Bengals, to reportedly a 2-year deal.

“We need a fullback, we need a lead blocker,” Head Coach Tom Coughlin said. “He is a physical guy. We think he’ll go up in the hole and clear the hole for the running back and we hope he’ll be a good pass protector and contribute on special teams as well.”

New York Giants Injury Report: Not practicing on Wednesday were OC David Baas (neck), OG Chris Snee (hip), TE Adrien Robinson (foot), LB Jacquian Williams (knee), and CB Corey Webster (hip).

OT David Diehl (thumb), LB Spencer Paysinger (hip), CB Terrell Thomas (knee), and S Cooper Taylor (shoulder) practiced on a limited basis.

“David Baas will not work today,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “Diehl is going to work. We’re going to have him in a limited capacity. We’ll see what he can do. Hynoski…You know about that. He’s going to go on IR. Spencer Paysinger is going to work. He’ll probably take three quarters of the work. Adrien Robinson is not going to work. Chris Snee is not going to work. It’s his hip. It’s not the operated or surgically-repaired hip. Cooper Taylor has a shoulder, but he’s doing better today. He’s a little bit stronger and he will work although he is to stay out of contact. We’re going to put Terrell on the list because he needs to be managed and probably one day a week or at some point in time we’ll have to cut the reps back for him so he has decent recovery time. Corey Webster feels better, but he’s not going to get clearance to go today. We expect Jacquian (Williams) to go tomorrow.”

August 27, 2013 New York Giants Injury Report: Not practicing on Tuesday were WR Victor Cruz (heel), WR Ramses Barden (knee), OC David Baas (knee), OT David Diehl (thumb), CB Jayron Hosley (ankle), and DT Markus Kuhn (PUP – knee).

“Feeling good, feeling good,” said Cruz on Tuesday. “It’s been better, feels a lot better, a lot of the swelling has gone down. Obviously I’m out of the boot now, looking forward to better days coming.”

Cruz was also asked if he would be ready for the opener against the Cowboys. “Absolutely,” responded Cruz. “I think that’s definitely a target date for me. I think I want to come out and get some regular practice in as well once the doctors let me and the training staff lets me do so. Just taking it one day at a time.”

“In my mind (Monday) is a date that I am targeting (to practice),” Cruz said. “So I am going to work diligently this week while the team is away and focus on getting myself right and getting ready to practice potentially by next week.”

Head Coach Tom Coughlin was asked about Baas. “He’s working hard, and feels a little bit better each day,” said Coughlin.

WR Louis Murphy (leg) returned to practice on a limited basis.

DE Jason Pierre-Paul (back), DE Damontre Moore (shoulder), S Antrel Rolle (ankle), and FB Henry Hynoski (knee) remained limited in practice. Pierre-Paul and Moore participated in some team drills.
