"Giants guard Chris Snee plans to play in the Pro Bowl in two weeks despite a torn hip labrum and bone chips in his hip that hampered him throughout the NFL season.”
Snee, according to a source familiar with his situation, has opted not to have surgery on his hip for now and will take part in the Jan. 27 game in Honolulu. He may still need what the source described as a “minor” surgical procedure, but he’ll discuss his options with doctors after the Pro Bowl is over.
Even if he has the minor surgery sometime next month, the source said Snee expects he’ll be ready for the start of training camp in July.
Snee, who turns 32 next Friday, was selected to his fourth Pro Bowl despite clearly struggling with his painful hip injuries over the final few months of the season. Two other Giants – WR Victor Cruz and DE Jason Pierre-Paul – are scheduled to play in the game, too.”
