Giants OL Matt Gono likely has career-ending neck injury

Earlier this week, the New York Giants placed offensive lineman Matt Gono on the exempt/left squad list. At the time, it was reported that Gono was dealing with an undisclosed injury and would visit a specialist to determine the severity.

Unfortunately for Gono and the Giants, the results were not positive.

Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports that Gono felt good earlier in camp but that his surgically repaired neck began hurting as the physicality in practice ramped up. It’s likely that the issue is career-ending.

The Giants signed the 26-year-old Gono after he was released by the Atlanta Falcons this past January. He had missed the 2021 season with the aforementioned neck injury.

Gono was originally signed by the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Wesley in 2018 and played in 21 games for Atlanta over two seasons (2019 and 2020), starting four.

The 6-foot-4, 305-pound Gono was born in Liberia and played his high school ball at Cinnaminson in Burlington County, New Jersey.
