Coaches, teammates and fans were glad to see Giants WR Victor Cruz back on the field for the start of training camp as Victor Cruz hit another major milestone in his return from a torn right patellar tendon.
“He actually went on the ground one time and actually felt good about doing that,” coach Tom Coughlin said at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center after the first practice. “That’s one hurdle. He was out there and working and enjoying himself. So there’s more to come.”
All the offseason reports lately about Cruz have been encouraging and of course he didn't start camp on the PUP list. The story said Cruz wasn’t only back, but he also participated in team drills for the first time this year. Cruz ranks 49th on our list. While looking good in practice is one thing, don't be surprised if he gets off to a slow start getting back to game speed and recovering from his injury. Cruz is maybe a guy to stash away and hope he progresses nicely through camp and the early season.
