Giants place veteran guard Chris Snee on injured reserve, done for season

Veteran guard Chris Snee has been placed on injured reserve by the New York Giants and is out for the rest of the season because of an injured hip.

A two-time Super Bowl winner and four-time Pro Bowler, the 10-year veteran might not need surgery, although he said, "that's likely what we're looking at." He had offseason surgery on his other hip.

A second-round draft choice in 2004, Snee started 152 of 159 regular-season and postseason games. Another veteran, David Diehl, will replace him at right guard against Philadelphia on Sunday.

Snee also is the son-in-law of Giants coach Tom Coughlin.
