Chris Snee injury: Giants guard could have hip surgery

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE

New York Giants right guard Chris Snee could require hip surgery to repair a torn labrum.

New York Giants offensive lineman Chris Snee could be facing hip surgery to repair a torn labrum, according to Dan Hanzuz of NFL.com. Snee reportedly can't move well due to the injury.

A source told Newsday that "If they don't get the joint to move again, [surgery] is probably going to be the only option."

Snee dealt with a similar injury in his other hip for several years, but the pain was manageable and he had surgery to repair it this offseason. This injury isn't allowing him full function of his hip, however, and the Giants started James Brewer this week as Snee was unable to travel.

Having to undergo hip surgery would likely mean Snee would miss the remainder of the season given the nature of said injury. As noted by Hanzuz, Snee considered retirement this season so the surgery could signify the end of his career if he elects to go in that direction.
