Snee Avoids Serious Injury:



Chris Snee’s ailing knee doesn’t feel very good at the moment, but the valuable starting right guard did not suffer a serious injury when he was forced out in the second quarter of the 31-24 victory over the Cowboys.

Snee underwent an MRI test yesterday and Tom Coughlin said Snee has a hyper-flexion of the knee and that “Chris is very, very sore.”

The pain and stiffness will have to calm down during the week in order for Snee to make his 77th consecutive regular-season start Sunday against the Eagles.

“It’s just going to have to be a day-to-day type thing,” Coughlin said.
A hyper-flexion of the knee occurs when there is a direct blow to the back of the thigh with the leg planted in the ground, often stretching the posterior cruciate ligament. The blow causes flexion of the knee beyond its normal range.

Backup Kevin Boothe replaced Snee and played the entire second half. Coughlin said Boothe, “did a good job. He has done a good job whenever called upon to come in and fill a spot.”

Thank goodness the injury wasn’t season ending, Snee is by far the best lineman for the Giants.
