Cruz on the side watching practice has been standard operating procedure for the Giants since he tore his patellar tendon during the 2014 season. The questions raised by the long run of injuries were clear during an appearance by General Manager Jerry Reese on WFAN.
“We’re still not giving up on Cruz,” Reese said, via the New York Daily News. “Hopefully, he’ll make it back.”
There's been some speculation that Cruz could be cut, but it sounds like the team is going to ride this out. It may end up being a different story if the injury lingers and Cruz can't get back to a full go.
