Injured veteran guard Chris Snee meeting with Giants about his future

Veteran guard Chris Snee is meeting with New York Giants doctors and team officials as he considers retirement after a 10-year career.

Snee has had two hip surgeries and now is most troubled by right elbow and wrist problems. He sat out minicamp last month, but indicated he expected to play this season.

The 32-year-old son-in-law of coach Tom Coughlin has several options for 2014. He could go on the physically unable to perform list, leaving open a return in October or November. He could be placed on injured reserve with an option to return — each team gets one such move, but can't exercise it this early. He also could go on IR and miss the entire season.

Or Snee could try to play through the pain.

A second-round pick in 2004, Snee has made four Pro Bowls.
