New York Giants offensive lineman Chris Snee played all 16 games of the 2012 season, but it certainly wasn't easy. It was revealed shortly after their season ended that Snee had not only battled through a partially torn hip labrum, but also several painful bone spurs.
A source close to Snee recently told Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News that he had "no idea" how Snee was even able to play, and that the veteran guard was in "a ton of pain." Yet he stuck it out and plans to do exactly that over the next few weeks, forgoing surgery so that he can play in the 2013 Po Bowl.
The injuries could explain Snee's uncharacteristic struggles in 2012, but they weren't enough to keep him from being elected to his fourth Pro Bowl. He will be joined by teammates Jason Pierre-Paul and Victor Cruz in Honolulu, Hawaii on January 27th.
Following the game, Snee will meet with doctors to discuss his options, and will likely need "minor" surgery. He is expected to be ready when the team begins training camp in July.
