ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Two-time Pro Bowl guard Chris Snee is the latest offensive lineman battling injuries.

The right guard missed both practices at the University at Albany on Wednesday with a little swelling in his left knee.

Snee said the injury was not serious.

Left guard Rich Seubert returned to practice, wearing a cast on his broken left hand.

Left tackle David Diehl tweaked an ankle in the evening practice.

Receivers Steve Smith and Sinorice Moss were again sidelined with groin injuries. Cornerback Corey Webster was out with a pulled muscle in his buttocks.

Safety Kenny Phillips, who returned to practice this week for the first time since major knee surgery in September, made his best play this week, breaking up a long sideline pass from Jim Sorgi to free agent receiver Victor Cruz.

“That definitely felt good,” Phillips said. “I feel like what I’ve been doing for these last 11 months and the way the coaches have been letting me gradually get in the ballgame has paid off. I’m just looking forward to that next step _ no pain, no soreness. I feel good with my range and everything so I’m just looking forward to it. That’s all I’m waiting on.”
