According to Tom Rock of Newsday, New York Giants guard Chris Snee could end up needing season ending hip surgery.
Chris Snee fought through a torn labrum in his hip for about four years before having surgery to repair it this offseason. But while that injury was painful, he was able to at least play. Now, Snee has a tear in the opposite hip, and while this one is just as painful, it also is far more constrictive to his abilities on the field.
“This one has the pain, but he can’t move,” a source told Newsday. “If they don’t get the joint to move again, [surgery] is probably going to be the only option.”
Snee is the Giants’ best offensive lineman. They really can’t afford to lose him and expect their line to improve their pass blocking and run blocking.
