Chris Snee Has Scope on Elbow: RG Chris Snee revealed yesterday that he had arthroscopic surgery performed on one of his elbows last week. Snee says he will be ready for the Organized Team Activity (OTA) practices in May. “Some things that add up over the years, stuff I’ve been choosing not to get done, and I decided that I had to do it,” Snee said. “A lot of maintenance to be done in there.”
“I didn’t let anyone know (about the injury),” Snee said. “It’s funny, you see negative stuff written about you, but…we’re tough guys. We’re supposed to play through things. I don’t feel it’s anyone’s business what I’m dealing with. The only people that hear about it are the training staff and my wife.”
“The thing is it already feels better than it did before surgery,” said Snee. “So that tells you what I was dealing with.”

Quotes: RG Chris Snee on the loss of HB Brandon Jacobs: “Brandon loves the game of football, plays with a lot of passion, plays very physical. Probably one of the toughest guys I’ve ever played with. He will be missed, there’s no doubt about it. He will be missed, he got us all fired up on game days. He loves to play the game of football, he loves it, and that rubs off on other guys.”
Snee on the loss of potential loss of RT Kareem McKenzie: “Kareem and I have had a great, very productive seven years together. We’re similar in many ways in the way we’ve handled the game. We’re quiet. We’re film junkies. I’ll miss the guy if he’s not back. I’m hoping he’ll get a call here shortly. I don’t know what the plan is. It would be similar to last year when Shaun (O’Hara) and Richie (Seubert) left. The bond that Kareem and I have is special. We’ve worked a lot of hours together.”
Snee on HB Da’Rel Scott: “A guy like Da’Rel Scott, he kind of showed a little bit in the preseason. He can run, I’ll tell you that. The guy can run. It’s just a matter of understanding what we’re doing.”
Snee on Head Coach Tom Coughlin: “It’s just a yearly battle with him. I’ve said this over and over again, but I feel bad for him because all he’s done is win football games and make this team a bunch of class guys. But I don’t think he gets appreciated. I still think that, even after winning this, if we go through a rough patch this year or the year after someone will be calling for him again. But I’m certainly happy for him. He’ll be coaching until they take him out of here. He’ll be coaching here longer than I’ll be playing here, I’ll tell you that.”
