Snee 'positive' About return, Moss Out

Starting right guard Chris Snee said he is "positive" about his return from an injured knee and fully expects to be ready come opening day when the Giants host the Colts on Sept. 10. Second-round pick WR Sinorice Moss wasn't so positive as he learned the Giants are going to shut him down through the weekend to allow his quad injury additional time to heal.

Snee said that, "no timeframe has been discussed." He felt some discomfort while practicing on Sunday and has been working with the training staff to correct what is believed to be a cartilage injury. After an MRI it was determined that there was no ligament damage and that surgery most likely wouldn't be necessary.

In his stead Rich Seubert has been working at right guard.

"That's a guy that's played some football at a high level but I'm also anxious to get him out of there," Snee said.

"I'm just holding it, it's Chris's spot," Seubert said. "I'm just holding it down for him till he gets back."

When asked if he'd be ready for opening day, Snee responded, "Gosh, I hope so."…

As for Moss, it's been quite a slow start to camp. After a non-descript first few practices, Moss succumbed to the quad injury and hasn't practiced since.

"We're going to rest him and see what happens," Tom Coughlin said. "Not a whole lot has changed."

"It's just a quadriceps injury and hopefully I'll be back soon," Moss said.

When asked if he was disappointed to be missing New York's opening preseason contest, Moss answered: "I'm not disappointed at all. I just have to take it slow and do what I have to do to get healthy."
