Chris Snee ready for Giants camp, but some doubt he’ll stay healthy

AP

Injuries limited Giants guard Chris Snee to just three games last season. He may not even play three games this season.

Although Snee will be ready to take the field when the Giants open training camp next week, there are so many questions about his injured elbow and his two injured hips that there are some doubts about whether he can stay healthy. Snee could last 16 games, 16 days or 16 minutes, writes Jordan Raanan of NJ.com.

It was hip surgery that knocked Snee out for the season after three games last year, but it is the elbow that is the bigger concern this year. The elbow injury forced Snee to miss the end of the Giants’ offseason program.

If Snee can go, he’ll be the Giants’ starting right guard, and even if he’s at less than 100 percent, the Giants will be satisfied that he can get the job done. But if Snee can’t go, the Giants will likely go with either Brandon Mosley or John Jerry, either of whom would be a step down from Snee.

  1. Chris Snee is the father of Tom Coughlin’s grandkids! Best leverage in the NFL. He’ll keep collecting paychecks whether he plays or not.

  2. This will be Tommy C’s last season due to another league leading INT performance by the elite QB of the NY Giants. Wasn’t that like 55 INTs in 3 season? Brett Favre numbers huh?

    One threat on offense in Cruz n a suspect defense will have Giants fans packing it in early just like last year. And there’s no need to get excited over the 7-3 or whatever your run was at the end of last season, because the year was already over by Week 8

  3. I don’t even care if he plays into the Giants’ offense. With two bad hips, I’m more concerned about his quality of life after football.

  4. Giants always put up a good fight within the NFC East but this division will get heavily outclassed by The Eagles.
    Eli will have a better year IF his online stays healthy which they probably won’t. Giants have put themselves behind the 8 ball with depth n cap issues so good luck strolling the #2s of the o line out there.

  5. Giants fans remain fully committed to Tom Coughlin, Eli Manning, Chris Snee, etc. Young Eli is now 33, so he’s got at least another 6 years in him (because he’s Peyton’s brother and he refuses to age).
    However, another bad season and maybe Mara and Tisch will ask some questions. Giants need to show improvement or changes will probably be made.

  6. It’s his last grab for money. He punched out 2 years ago. Good thing he’s Coughlin’s son-in-law.

  7. One threat on offense? Hmm, Odell Beckham Jr will be a threat. I believe Rueben Randle will flourish in the new system being installed. The running game is vastly improved with Rashard Jennings and Andre Williams coming aboard. The question mark remains at TE though.

  8. Another snoozer of a post from another Eli hater. ^

    I bet you wouldn’t mind if your qb threw “like 55 ints” (what are you? A 12 yr old girl using “like”) if it resulted in 2 sbmvps in “what, like the last 7 seasons”?

    Nice talk.

  9. The Cough-meds on the hot seat – check. Eli coming off a bad year and the haters circling like buzzards – check. OLine in question – check. Best defensive player in dire need of a comeback season – check. Jerry Reese being questioned for every decision – check. Feels like a Super Bowl season, gents!

  10. Chris Snee is was an all-pro guard opening big holes for Tiki Barber, still the giants leading rusher.
    But make no mistake, Coughlin won’t let Snee play if he can’t play up to par, and if that happens, expect Snee to man up, and retire.
    Giants have Mosely, Brown, Jerry and Richburg who has taken many snaps at G in OTA’s & Minicamp.
    As much as any giants fan, these guys try right up to the end, it might be closer than we know for Snee.
    Camp opens Monday July 21st.

  11. Snee signed a team friendly contract, so it’s not like he wasss heavily invested in, plus the Giants made sure they added plenty of depth at the oline position so to me it’s just an added bonus if he stays healthy. To all you Eli haters you do realize that Eli is one of the best no-huddle/hurry up qb’s in the league, right? Well our new offensive cord. is bringing a West Coast offense to the Giants which plays right into Eli’s biggest strength. I see Eli throwing 30 TD’s to 15 ints this year, especially since Eli will not be holding on to the ball as much. This offense will be much quicker, which makes life for the oline a lot easier. Blocking for 3 seconds compared to 8 seconds is a huge difference. Just wait and see, especially since we finally have a RB (Jennings) that can actually catch passes on the flat/screens.

  12. I don’t care how bad ur o line is, no excuses for throwing 27 ints, there’s smells of Eli decending. Even Vick with a 2nd string o line didn’t come close to throwing 27 ints.

  13. Eli is going to have a solid season. Gilbrides offense was outdated and isn’t sustainable unless you have a solid oline and running game. The passing game under Gilbride was about attacking downfield which the Giants couldn’t do because there oline was awful. The offense this year will be about getting the ball out quickly and not attacking downfield.

  14. Dude, do you even watch the Giants play??? More than half of Eli’s ints were due to the WR’s running the wrong route, or the RB’s and TE Myers failed attempts to catch the football and pop the ball in the air for the other team to catch. How about you do a little research before you bring up those 27 ints. BTW, Vick didn’t throw more ints than Eli cause he missed several games due to injury, and was on his way to break the single season turnover amount (ints and fumbles). So you fail, @wiztopher
