Crucial week for Giants WR Victor Cruz

ESPN - [Full Article]

Victor Cruz's professional life rests on the results of this upcoming week. It’s the biggest week of the New York Giants wide receiver’s career since the summer of 2010, when he needed an enormous preseason performance against the New York Jets to introduce himself to the world.

And whom do the Giants play later this week? The Jets, of course. The perfect stage for Cruz's reintroduction.

Cruz is trying desperately to return to game action this week for the first time in almost two years. He’s been dealing with a nagging groin problem this summer, on the heels of calf and knee injuries the previous two years. It has been almost two weeks since Cruz last finished a practice, and almost two years since he last appeared in a game.

Fantasy Impact: 

The former Pro Bowl receiver will practice on Monday, when the Giants run a light workout centered on conditioning. Cruz didn’t play on Saturday, but he did participate in warm-ups and run some routes before the game. That was considered a significant step in his comeback.
