New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Four-time Pro Bowl guard Chris Snee, who
has two Super Bowl titles with the Giants, will not play again this season
after being placed on injured reserve with a torn labrum in his right hip.
The New York Daily News said Snee's injury is potentially career-ending.

Snee, who is signed through the 2014 season, has started all 141 regular
season games he has played in for the Giants. He was originally selected by
New York in the second round of the 2004 NFL Draft.
On Thursday, the Giants acquired linebacker Jon Beason from the Carolina
Panthers for a late-round draft pick. Beason, a three-time Pro Bowler in his
own right, is expected to take Snee's roster spot.
