New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz had a platelet-rich plasma injection Thursday in an effort to help his injured calf, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.
Cruz was expected to play this week after missing the first three games of the season, but a setback Wednesday during practice has put his status in limbo. While this PRP procedure should help Cruz regain strength in his injured left calf strain quicker, there isn't concrete evidence to suggest when he will be able to return to the field.
Tom Coughlin acknowledged Thursday that there is no timetable for the return of New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz , who aggravated his left calf injury at practice Wednesday.
While the Giants aren't inclined to estimate when Cruz might return to action, Dan Graziano of ESPN speculated that it could be several weeks before he can suit up.
New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz (calf) has officially been ruled out for Week 4 at Buffalo, per Josina Anderson of ESPN.
Initially expected to make his season debut Sunday, Cruz suffered a setback during practice Wednesday and will continue to be sidelined. Odell Beckham remains the team's clear No. 1 receiver, with Reuben Randle and Dwayne Harris slotting in as the second and third options in his absence.
New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz suffered a setback with his left calf at Wednesday's practice, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.
"Victor came out and tried to do individuals. He felt the calf again and that's all he did," coach Tom Coughlin said.
Cruz was expected to ramp up his workload this week in anticipation of taking the field Sunday in Buffalo, but Wednesday's tweak puts a damper on those plans. If he sits out again, Eli Manning will still have Odell Beckham , Rueben Randle and Dwayne Harris at his disposal.
New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz (calf) will practice Wednesday, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.
It's not clear how much work Cruz will get in during the Giants' first official practice of the week, but his participation alone in Wednesday's session keeps the momentum moving toward him making his season debut in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills .
