"It's not bad," Cruz said on WFAN on Tuesday afternoon. "The doctors graded it a low-grade sprain to the ankle. I got an MRI and I have to stay on top of it. It is a little sore today, I'm not going to lie. But it's optimistic. Everything looks like it's going in the right direction. I just have to get through week, get through some good days of treatment and see how it feels."
Cruz suffered the injury when he made a 46-yard catch in the second quarter of Sunday's 28-23 win over the Eagles. Cruz "tweaked" his ankle when Philadelphia cornerback Leodis McKelvin landed on it while making the tackle from behind. As we stated in previous reports, Cruz is losing snaps to Roger Lewis and Dwayne Harris.
