Chris Snee Might Need Season-Ending Hip Surgery: According to various press reports, OG Chris Snee has a torn labrum in his left hip which is also impeding the joint. Snee had surgery on a torn labrum and bone spurs in his right hip in the offseason.
“This one has the pain, but he can’t move,” an unidentified source told Newsday. “If they don’t get the joint to move again, (surgery) is probably going to be the only option.”
“Yes, surgery is definitely an option,’’ an unidentified source told The New York Post. “The question is just if they can get the hip playable, like they did with the other one. He is a tough SOB, but if you can’t move, it doesn’t matter how tough you are. The last time, at least he was able to move.’’
Snee did not play in last weekend’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs, but the time off apparently has not helped much. “(There’s) not a lot of improvement from the treatments,” the Newsday source said. “It is not looking too good right now.”
Meanwhile, The New York Post is also reporting that OC David Baas, who did not play last weekend because of a neck injury, is unlikely to play this weekend against the Philadelphia Eagles.

S Antrel Rolle asking for fan support: “That’s something I want to ask for all of our great fans we have out there, just bring the enthusiasm, bring the excitement. We want to hear that loud noise, we want to hear that roar like we heard when we were making our Super Bowl run when we were playing against Atlanta. That was the loudest I’ve ever heard a stadium in my life. We need that same intensity from our fans. We know we haven’t given them much to get fighting for, to rah-rah-rah for, but just to bring it. We promise you we’re gonna bring our best.’’
