EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Monday that center David Baas and right guard Chris Snee were both dealing with "some issues" physically that the team was checking out this week. Coughlin did not specify, but people with knowledge of the situations said Snee was having problems with his surgically repaired hip and Baas was dealing with a neck problem similar to the ones that have troubled him in the past.
It's unclear to what extent the injury issues affected either player in Sunday's 38-0 loss to Carolina, in which quarterback Eli Manning took seven sacks, or whether they put Baas or Snee in danger of missing this Sunday's game in Kansas City. The Giants had meetings Monday and don't practice Tuesday, so it might not be until Wednesday until they know more on those players' status.
Coughlin also said he had no update on the status of fullback Henry Hynoski, who suffered a fractured shoulder in Sunday's loss. Hynoski said after the game that he was going for further tests Monday. It's possible the Giants would have to place Hynoski on injured reserve and sign or promote someone to replace him on the roster.
Safety Cooper Taylor, who also left Sunday's game with a shoulder injury, said he felt fine and would play Sunday.
