Snee suffered the injury during the middle portion of the season and struggled to hold up down the stretch. He played every game through the injury and when he was called upon to act as a replacement on the NFC Pro Bowl roster, he did that as well.
There is no questioning that Snee is one of the most durable and valuable players in the NFL, but he has begun to wear down the past two seasons. He has struggled with knee, hip, and even concussion issues over the past two seasons and even admitted that he was considering retirement.
Snee will be around in 2013 but the distinct possibility exists that he will need to rotate in and out of the lineup in training camp in order to keep his legs fresh.
The projected timetable is quite long, but Snee must have known for sure that the 6-8 month timetable would not be needed here considering he played in the Pro Bowl. For a person whose body is their livelihood, Snee surely has the acumen not to sacrifice playing time for a Pro Bowl visit.
This will be worth monitoring over the next several months.
