Giants WR Victor Cruz has no doubts he'll be ready for season opener
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz is confident he'll be healthy enough to play in the team's season opener, reports NFL.com.

"There's zero doubts that I'll be playing in that first game," he said.

Cruz is attempting to comeback from a surgically-repaired knee and general manger Jerry Reese said the team is pleased with Cruz's progress.

"He looked good, he's running pretty good, right now and he's scheduled to be back ready for the opener for us," Reese said. "But until you get out there and turn it loose, you never know what a guy is going to do. But he looks great right now."

Cruz added that he intends to return to the same player he was before he suffered the knee injury.

"I do feel like I can continue to be the same guy that I was before," he said.

During his rehab, Cruz has been able to do some straight-line running, but has not been cutting on his knee, reports The Record

Giants' Victor Cruz calls knee rehab one of most difficult things in his life
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Although Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz is making progress from his surgically-repaired knee, he said the rehab has been difficult to deal with, reports the New York Daily News.

"[This rehab] is definitely is one of the most difficult things I've had to go through in my life," Cruz said. "Still currently going through it. It's not easy to come back from something like this and to work every day."

Despite the grueling nature of the rehab, Cruz is optimistic he will make a full recovery from a torn patellar tendon in his right knee.

"I think the mental aspect was early and then it'll be late," Cruz said. "Early meaning when it first happened, thinking you probably won't be able to even run again, and 'late' when you are able to run and jump and mentally being able to connect to your knee, saying that you can do all these things and not being afraid to do it. I think that's both sides of it."

Giants won't rush WR Victor Cruz back to the field
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Although Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is hopeful that wide receiver Victor Cruz will be ready by training camp, the team will not rush him back, reports ESPN.

"I shouldn't say this, because medically I really don't have a definite answer, but by training camp hopefully, even if it's just to bring him," Coughlin said. "We're not going to just throw him to the wind. He'll work his way through. But I hope that would be the target."

Cruz tore his patellar tendon in week six of the 2014 season, causing him to miss the rest of the year. Coughlin is hopeful that he'll return to be the player that he was before the injury.

"I think he'll be the player that he was, and hopefully better," Coughlin said of Cruz. "But as far as when, I would be careful of what I would say there. Hopefully it's the first game. But if it isn't, you know we've done that one before. We just went through it. But I'm hoping it would be."

The former undrafted free agent has tallied 264 receptions for 3,963 yards and 24 touchdowns.

Giants' Coughlin: WR Victor Cruz looks 'really good'
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is encouraged that wide receiver Victor Cruz can return to form, according to the NY Daily News. Cruz suffered a torn patellar tendon that forced him to miss 10 games last season.

“I think he will be back to the player that he was and hopefully better. Victor looks really good, he’s starting to run, I was in the field house watching him rehab, he’s coming along well.” … As for when Cruz will be back at practice, full-time, Coughlin added, “I don’t know. I shouldn’t say this, because medically I really do not have a definite answer, but by training camp, hopefully. He will work his way through.”

Through his five years in the NFL, Cruz has 264 receptions for 3,963 yards and 24 touchdowns.
