Even being the head coach's son-in-law might not be enough to help get Chris Snee back in a New York Giants uniform in the future — or any uniform for that matter. The four-time Pro Bowl offensive guard got word Friday that the surgery he'll likely need to repair a torn labrum and remove bone chips from his right hip will surely end his season. And now, Snee, after facing the fact he’ll be out for the year, is looking at the possibility that he’ll never play on an NFL field again. A rock on the Giants’ offensive line for a decade, Snee was placed on season-ending injured reserve on Friday. At 31 years old, a season-ending injury very well could mean career-ending, too — especially since he pondered retirement when he battled through the same injury to his left hip last year. Snee said retirement is “not something I’m thinking about right now. I’m honestly just trying to get over the frustration on this.” But for a player who missed five games as a rookie and then not another start until last Sunday, that frustration won’t be easy to get over. “I’ve always been a guy that by Friday, I can suit up and play,” Snee said. “I was secretly hoping I’d wake up and things would feel different, I’d respond to the treatment, the medicine, and it just didn’t happen. It’s frustrating. It’s just a new situation for me. I’ve always been able to play through things — sometimes things no one knew about, sometimes things I kept to myself. “I had to be honest with everyone because it really got to the point where I was doing no good.” Snee, who was placed on IR as soon as the Giants’ trade for linebacker Jon Beason became official on Friday afternoon, said he will meet with Dr. Bryan Kelly, one of the Giants’ team doctors, to discuss his options on Saturday. “I’ve been feeling it for some time now,” Snee said. “I’ve always been able to play through things, but clearly I couldn’t. So the best thing is for me to watch my team play and try to get my hip right. If I was able to play through something I would.” The two-time Super Bowl champion can now only wait and see if he'll be donning Giants' blue next year.
