Giants activate Chris Snee, Terrell Thomas from PUP list

USA TODAY Sports

Terrell Thomas is back from an ACL surgery, while Chris Snee is recovering from hip surgery. Both players are off the PUP and started practicing Tuesday.

The New York Giants have activated cornerback Terrell Thomas and guard Chris Snee from the PUP list, the team announced on its Twitter page. Both players took the first week of training camp off, but will be returning to practice on Tuesday.

Thomas suffered a third torn ACL in his right knee last fall. He was cleared for action in May and hopes to stay on the football field. He hasn't played in a regular season game since 2010. The Giants are expected to move him to safety to reduce wear and tear on his legs.

Snee, the starting right guard, battled hip soreness last season, although he played in all 16 games. He had offseason surgery on the hip in February and should be ready to go for the regular season. The 31-year-old has missed only one game since 2004.
