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

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.

No timetable on return for Giants WR Victor Cruz
by Dave Peters |

Although Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is cautiously optimistic about the return of wide receiver Victor Cruz, he seems to be lowering his expectations, according to the New York Post.

“I think he’ll be the player that he was, and hopefully better,” Coughlin said during the NFC coaches’ breakfast at the Arizona Biltmore. “But as far as when, I would be careful. Hopefully, it’s the first [regular-season] game. But if it isn’t, we’ve done that before. We just went through it.”

Cruz suffered a nasty patellar tendon injury in 2014. Coughlin liked what he saw in last week's workout for the wideout, stating that he hopes to have Cruz available at the start of training camp. But they won't rush him back.

“You’re not just going to throw him to the wind,” Coughlin said. “He’ll work his way through.”

The 28-year-old was signed by the Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2010. Over his five-year career, he has tallied 264 receptions for 3,963 yards and 24 touchdowns.

Giants WR Victor Cruz 'very confident' he can return to form
by Larry Hartstein |

Giants receiver Victor Cruz, who tore his patella tendon last October, told the New York Post his knee is "feeling better every day." He has begun running on a machine that allows him to use partial body weight, the paper said.

"I just want to get back out there and get back to 100 percent," Cruz said. "I’m very confident I can get back to where I was.”

Cruz said he understands GM Jerry Reese's recent comment that the team can't count on Cruz regaining his Pro Bowl form. He knows he has a lot to prove.

“I’m extremely anxious to run for real and make those cuts you need to make when you’re healthy,” Cruz said. “I’m a competitor and want to start that process now. I’ll be out there soon enough.”

GM Jerry Reese: Giants can't rely on Victor Cruz recovery for 2015
by Igor Mello |

Giants general manager Jerry Reese told reporters that the team can't rely on wideout Victor Cruz being fully recovered in time for the 2015 season. Reese noted that doing so wouldn't be responsible for the front office, and that as a result, they'll look to improve at the position this offseason, according to ESPN.

"When a guy has a big injury like Victor had, you can't put all your eggs in his basket," Reese said. "Our doctors say he looks good. I see him down in the training room, working out with our trainers and our medical people, and he looks good. But his game is quickness. And until you get out there and move around, you never really know how he's going to recovery from that. We're hoping and praying that he'll come back 100 percent and be the Victor Cruz that we know, but you can't put 100 percent in that basket."

Cruz tore his patella tendon in October against the Eagles. He was limited to 23 catches for 337 and one touchdown in six games in 2014. Coach Tom Coughlin told reporters that Cruz should start running soon, and that he remains "where he needs to be" in his recovery process.
