WR Victor Cruz was announced as having a rib injury after being hit by Pittsburgh’s Ryan Clark in the end zone in the first half, but he finished the game and said he just got the wind knocked out of him.
It is interesting to note that he uncharacteristically was not on the field for a few early plays in the game. Rookie Rueben Randle got more opportunities in this game.
“It was just part of the game plan, something coach wanted to do,” Cruz said. “So that was it. I don’t know (why), you’re going to have to ask coach I guess for that one.”
