Giants HC Ben MaAdoo, WR Victor Cruz have 'nice conversation'

New York Post - [Full Article]

Ben McAdoo revealed he had “a nice conversation’’ Sunday afternoon with Victor Cruz, the again-injured Giants receiver who missed another practice Monday because of a sore groin.

“We talked about some different things that may be able to help moving forward, and I’ll let him share that,’’ McAdoo said. “I’m not going to share that. I’ll keep our conversation private.’’

Cruz was not in the sharing mood. He did not speak publicly about his situation, which is growing more tenuous. After initially steering clear of any setbacks as he attempts to come back from knee and calf injuries that kept him off the field since Oct. 2014, Cruz was sidelined with a groin issue that kept him out of the preseason-opening loss to the Dolphins.

“We’re building him up to get to a position where we can make an evaluation,’’ McAdoo said. “He had the hiccup, hoping to get him some work on Wednesday.’’

Fantasy Impact: 

He has virtually no chance to play in Saturday’s game against the Bills in Buffalo, and the Giants are searching for any sign of progress as the days move forward and Cruz sits, the story said. There have been whispers about the team possibly cutting Cruz, but the same people said it's also not likely - at least yet. Cruz restructured his contract and Giants feel they may own him more time as he tries to battle back from all of his injuries.
