Giants’ Pro Bowl OL Chris Snee returned to practice yesterday after missing last week’s game with a concussion – the first of his football life.
from Mike Vorunkov of the Star-Ledger:
Now, rested and back to health after a bye week, the Giants have regained something that has been unfamiliar to them as of late: an offensive line in place with all five starters. And just in time as the Miami Dolphins come in fresh off a seven-sack performance Sunday against the Denver Broncos.
“It’ll be a good thing,” said coach Tom Coughlin, also Snee’s father-in-law.

Here's one of the few times you'll ever get an offensive lineman to admit that he held someone: Chris Snee, who suffered a concussion against the Seahawks a little more than two weeks ago, said he was in such bad shape coming off the field in the fourth quarter of that game that he had to grab on to the referee in order to keep from falling over.

Chris Snee didn’t think it was that big a deal three Sundays ago against Seattle. His head hurt, but that wasn’t the first time.“I’ve had headaches before,” Snee said yesterday. “Later on, when the dizziness and everything else hit me, I could tell it was more...
The hit to Chris Snee's head wasn't anything unusual, so he kept playing because that's what football players do. Only later, in the fourth quarter of the Giants' loss to Seattle on Oct. 9, did Snee realize how serious it was. The 29-year-old guard was blocking downfield and barely bumped heads with Ahmad Bradshaw and the headache that had lingered for three quarters...
Our friend at Giants.com, Mike Eisen, tells us all about right guard Chris Snee's return to the practice field after getting concussed in the loss to Seattle.
EAST RUTHERFORD - The referee was all he had to hold onto, so Chris Snee reached out and grabbed him to prevent himself from collapsing on the field.
The right guard had played with a headache for most of the Oct. 9 loss to Seattle after taking a "pretty good shot early on." But after bumping helmets with teammate Ahmad Bradshaw in the fourth quarter, he could no longer...

OL Chris Snee on his concussion:
“I took a pretty good shot early on, but was never dizzy or anything like that. But is was a good shot. I bumped it later on and that is what I think pushed it over.”
“I remember grabbing on to the referee ’cause if I didn’t I was going down.”
