Victor Cruz won't be suiting up in 2015.
The Giants wide receiver, who has been out since Week 6 of last year after a gruesome knee injury, has tried to battle through a calf injury that he sustained in training camp. But on Monday, Cruz announced in a video that he's going to have surgery on the calf and hopes to get healthy for next year.
Cruz tore the patellar tendon in his right knee in Week 6 of 2014 and missed the remainder of that season after surgery. His rehab was going well until he tore a muscle in his left calf in a training camp practice in mid-August, and he hasn't practiced since or played in a game this season. Cruz's future with the Giants can now be considered in doubt. After this season, he has three years left on the five-year, $43 million contract he signed before the 2014 season. None of the remaining money is guaranteed, but Cruz is owed $7.9 million, $7.4 million and $8.4 million in salary in the next three seasons and is scheduled to count $9.9 million against the Giants' 2016 salary cap. They'll likely seek a restructuring after a full season missed because of injury and could release him if he won't agree to one.
