Victor Cruz: "Iím about 80 percent there"-- Thu May 28 10:30 am --
Giants wideout has been running routes for two weeks
Victor Cruz is getting close.
ďIím about 80 percent there. I think itís just a matter of continuing to build the strength for the last leg of it,Ē Cruz told The Post on Wednesday after the Giantsí first OTA practice. ďIíve been running some routes for about two weeks now, and thereís been no pain, no swelling or anything like that, which are all good signs.Ē

FF Today's Take:Cruz suffered a patellar knee injury last October which is difficult to recover from. Fantasy owners shouldn't count on Cruz making a significant contribution until mid-season. Training camp and his will give us a better idea of how close he is to contributing on the field.
Coughlin unsure if Cruz will be ready for Week 1-- Wed Mar 25 1:14 pm --
Patellar tendon injury
Coughlin did not have anything new to say about Victor Cruz's recovery from a torn patellar tendon. He agreed with Cruz's personal goal that he'd be good to go by training camp, but said the team is "not gonna throw him to the wind, he'll work his way through." Coughlin added that he couldn't say with any confidence that Cruz would be ready for the first regular season game. (NJ.com)
FF Today's Take:Cruz's injury is more significant than an ACL and typically requires a longer recovery time. Whenever he does hit the field in 2015, he will likely be less than 100 percent. GM Jerry Reese has already stated that he doesn't expect Cruz to make the same impact he made before the injury. Cruz tore his patellar tendon last October.
