Chris Snee’s career is reportedly at a close.

The Giants’ 11th-year right guard is expected to announce his retirement on Monday, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reported.

Snee, 32, has made 141 starts for the Giants since joining the club in 2004. He was a Pro Bowl starter in 2012, but hip and elbow injuries ended his 2013 campaign after just three starts, and his health reportedly looms an issue now as the Giants prepare to report to training camp on Monday.

A report indicating Snee would be retiring surfaced on Sunday on BigBlueInteractive.com, and various published reports since have only added to the sentiment that Snee’s long and productive stint in New York could be at an end.

Snee’s impending departure leaves wide receiver Victor Cruz, quarterback Eli Manning and fullback Henry Hynoski as the only offensive starters from the Giants’ Super Bowl XLVI-winning squad still with the club.

UPDATE 11:06 p.m. ET:  A league source tells PFT that it’s a 100-percent certainty that Snee will retire.
