    Giants' Victor Cruz: Recovering from torn fascia in calf

    Cruz is recovering from a torn fascia in his left calf, which kept him from logging any snaps during the 2015 campaign, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports. After sustaining the ailment in mid-August, it was initially reported that Cruz was dealing with a sprain, but recurring inflammation forced the Giants to shut down the fifth-year wide receiver during a Week 11 bye. With the "very rare" diagnosis official, he's expected to be 100 percent once the healing process from season-ending surgery is complete. While the recovery from this injury is accompanied by no issues long-term, the rehab process will nonetheless be monitored closely as the offseason proceeds.

    Giants WR Victor Cruz to have season-ending calf surgery

    Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz announced that he will have season-ending surgery on his left calf. Cruz's 2015 season will come to a close without him making any appearances, as continued discomfort in his calf precluded him from returning following last season's serious knee injury. While Cruz will now look forward to taking the field next season, the Giants' receiving corp figures to remain unchanged moving forward this term.

    Giants WR Victor Cruz ruled out Sunday

    Cruz (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots. This is merely a formality, as Cruz is targeting a return after the Giants' bye week for a Week 12 game against the Redskins on Nov. 29. He has progressed to straight-line sprints, but he still isn't practicing with his teammates or making sharp cuts.

    Giants' Victor Cruz: No practice Thursday

    Cruz (calf) was a non-participant in practice Thursday. Cruz's continued absence from drills isn't a surprise, as the Giants ensure that he avoids a setback with his left calf in this particular recovery effort. It's worth noting that his workload Thursday included straight-line sprints, according to Jordan Raanan of NJ.com. Coming one day removed from catching passes while jumping on steps, Cruz appears to be gearing up for a return to drills following the team's Week 11 bye. His season debut is unlikely to occur this weekend, but if all goes as planned, he could make his presence felt on Nov. 29 in Washington.

    Giants' Victor Cruz: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Cruz (calf) didn't take part in Wednesday's practice, during which he fit in agility drills on the side, Art Stapleton of The Record reports. Last Thursday, Cruz ran for the first time since aggravating his left calf on Sept. 30, and his drills Wednesday included jumping on steps while gathering in a football. It's clear that he's finally making inroads toward a return to action, but he's probably hard-pressed at this point to play Sunday versus the Patriots. The more logical scenario is using the Giants' Week 11 bye to prepare for his first game of the season on Nov. 29 at Washington.

    Giants' Victor Cruz: Out for another week

    Cruz (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay. Cruz ran Thursday for the first time since September 30, but there still hasn't been any indication that his return is imminent. Cruz even admitted that he's merely hoping to be back after the Giants' Week 11 bye, which would allow him to get in six games this season.

    Giants' Victor Cruz: Runs for first time since September

    Cruz ran Thursday for the first time since aggravating his left calf in practice on Sept. 30, Tom Rock of Newsday reports. Cruz's absence from drills continued Thursday, but he said that the weekly MRI on his calf came back clean, spurring him to tell Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News that a return "after the bye looks like a promising date." While Cruz is currently without a recovery timetable, likely due to numerous setbacks already this season, the Giants have two games remaining before a Week 11 bye, ensuring the freedom to clear up his availability. If he avoids any bumps in the road, the preceding could very well come to pass.

    Cruz (calf) doesn't have a timetable for a return, the Giants' official site reports. During media availability Wednesday, head coach Tom Coughlin relayed Cruz's current state.
