Victor Cruz heads to locker room for foot X-rays, has bruised heel
Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz went to the locker room in the first quarter Sunday night to have X-rays taken on his foot.
The good news for the Giants was they got Hakeem Nicks back on the field for the first time this season. The bad news, though, is that superstar wideout Victor Cruz left the game early to have an X-ray taken on his foot.
Fortunately those x-rays turned out to be negative, as the Giants announced that Cruz simply has a bruised heel. That's a huge, huge win for New York.
That's what the Giants announced in the press box, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora, who's currently at the Meadowlands.
And now Victor Cruz going for an x-ray on his foot.. Yikes— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) August 18, 2013
That's an in-the-bad-way, breath-taking scenario for Giants fans: Cruz heads into 2012 as one of the top wideouts in the NFL and certainly Eli Manning's favorite and most-consistent weapon over the past few years.
It's possible that Cruz, who signed a long-term contract with the Giants this offseason, only went to the locker room as a precaution; that's the sort of thing you'd do in the preseason certainly.
But it's not a good look at all that he's requiring x-rays. We'll keep you updated as we hear more from New York.
