Chris Snee injures elbow, out for minicamp

New York Giants offensive lineman Chris Snee re-injured his elbow that he had surgically repaired this offseason. Big Blue is hoping that Snee's injury is minor and that he will be back healthy for the start of training camp.

Seems like offensive line injuries are running rampant on the New York Giants. Big Blue is only two days into Mini-Camp, and already Chris Snee, re-injured his elbow that he had surgery on this offseason and will be held out the rest of Giants mini-camp.

The Giants, who dealt with a slew of injuries to their offensive line this past season, hope that Snee's injury is not serious and he will be healthy when the season or training camp begins. "His elbow is bothering him so we're kind of taking it step by step on that," Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said on Snee's injury.

Snee, who is Coughlins son-in-law, was one of many offensive lineman that were injured for the Giants this past season. After having surgery this offseason on his elbow, Snee has looked great in OTA's and other Giants offseason activities, but recently has felt discomfort in his elbow according to Coughlin.

" I think it's started to bother him," noted New York's head man. "He did all of the separate days and pretty much all of the OTAs and then the elbow started to bother him so we kind of shut it down", said Coughlin, who like Snee is entering his 11th straight season at the helm with Giants.

With Snee's recent injury situation, the Giants will be on a wait and see basis with him to see how he recovers from the recent injury flair up.

" The plan with him is to see if we can get the elbow right so that he feels comfortable and confident," stated Coughlin. "We won't be in a rush in that regard. He's played enough, we can get him healthy and get him right back to where he was. We know what we have."
