On Thursday, ESPN’s Jordan Raanan explained what’s going on with Gono. And it’s not encouraging.

Giants OT Matt Gano likely has career-ending neck injury, per source. Felt good early @ camp but started feeling symptoms in neck (which needed surgery last yr) when hitting started this week. Gono left team to see doctor who performed surgery. Hence exempt/left squad designation.

The 26-year-old Gono is from Cinnaminson, N.J. in Burlington County. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, he was born in Liberia and moved to South Jersey as a child.
