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 driil at 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.''

Hynoski was the only fullback on the roster at the workout on Wednesday. Veteran tight end Bear Pascoe has played some fullback for New York in recent seasons.

Hynosski, who is using 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 a 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.
