Victor Cruz is still not cleared to return to practice as the days dwindle before the regular season opener.
"They haven't cleared me just yet. I'm just listening to the training staff," Cruz said. "I think we're just being careful and cautious with it. Calves are tricky. Once they feel healed and once they feel OK, you can come out here and mess it up again. So you want to make sure it's fully healed and fully recovered before you step back out on the field."
Cruz will again miss practice on Monday as he battles a sprained left calf. The calf injury is not related to his surgically-repaired right knee - Cruz suffered a season-ending patellar tear 11 months ago - but it has turned out to be more of an issue than originally thought, the story said.
