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.

Giants RB Shane Vereen will be more than third-down back
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Giants running back Shane Vereen is being viewed as much more than just a third-down running back, according to nj.com.

The team is excited about his ability to catch passes out of the backfield, but he'll be relied on to do more than that.

"I see him in that regard as a pass receiver coming out of the backfield, a pass protector, a guy who runs the ball in the three-wide offense in the run game, if you will, which is very prevalent today in our sport," coach Tom Coughlin said at the NFL Annual Meetings this week. "So I see him in that regard."

Last season the Giants did not have one receiving touchdown by a running back. Vereen, formerly of the Patriots, had three receiving touchdowns out of the backfield last year.

"Well, you know what [Vereen] can do. Quite frankly, it's something from an attack standpoint we've had some success with, but not to the extent that he has," Coughlin said. "When you look at Vereen, a lot of the [Tom] Brady hookup with Vereen was the ball was almost automatically going to him. First down, if it was zone coverage, they were dropping the ball down and he would scoot. So we know that. Will we open it up to more parts of it?"

The 26-year-old has 907 yards rushing and seven touchdowns on the ground, adding 107 receptions for 1,023 yards and seven touchdowns through the air in four years.

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

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 don't see an issue extending QB Eli Manning
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Giants head coach Tom Coughlin seems confident that the team will get something worked out on an extension for quarterback Eli Manning, according to nj.com.

"I don't see that as being an issue at all," Coughlin said Wednesday at the NFC coaches' breakfast at the NFL's Annual Meetings. "Eli knows he's our guy."

Giants co-owner Steve Tisch also believes that they will get something worked out with the two-time Super Bowl champion.

"Everyone is aware of the contract status, but we'll get there. Yeah, I think we'll get it done," co-owner Steve Tisch said. "We know what an asset we have with Eli."

Manning, 34, has passed for 39,755 yards with 259 touchdowns and 185 interceptions in 11 seasons played.
