The hits just keep on coming for the New York Giants. The Giants, who have floundered to an 0-4 start, have been dealing with injuries left and right. It now appears that RG Chris Snee, who had hip surgery in the offseason and has been dealing with a hip injury on the opposite side of late, may need season-ending surgery.

According to the Star-Ledger’s Connor Orr, Snee “can’t move” as the pain in his hip has worsened. The injury has to do with his labrum and bone chips, which are keeping the joint from moving properly while causing “immense pain.”

As of right now there is no timetable for when Snee and the team will make a decision on what course of action is appropriate. This is terrible news for an already struggling offensive line. That’s not to say that Snee has played well while everyone around him has played poorly — he has been pretty awful too. Even so, the veteran and four-time Pro Bowler is an integral part of the Giants’ offensive line.

Keeping the bad news flowing, Orr also reported that C Kevin Baas (neck) has not made progress and indicated that he may be out for an extended period of time.

The Giants recently worked out former Rams rookie Ryan Lee, and also signed former Eagles C Dallas Reynolds, who started 14 games a year ago.
