Victor Cruz seems nowhere closer to returning to play, as he deals with a myriad of health issues, most recently a groin strain.


The definition of insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different outcome. It's fair to say many fantasy owners are insane when it comes to counting on Victor Cruz. All kidding aside, Cruz is three years removed from his last dominant season, and has missed 26 games in the last two seasons trying to come back from a knee injury and a torn calf. In May Cruz declared himself 100% healthy and vowed to be a full participant in training camp. Unfortunately, he hasn't made good on his promise. (August 16)

Giants | Victor Cruz impresses at camp (Tue Aug 23, 08:20 PM) - New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) did not show any signs of a lingering groin injury at practice Tuesday, Aug. 23, and he displayed quickness off the line of scrimmage. Cruz was a full participant in practice for the first time since Aug. 8.

Giants | Victor Cruz to practice in full (Tue Aug 23, 11:13 AM) - New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) will practice with no expected limitations Tuesday, Aug. 23. If all goes well this week, he'll play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 27.

Our View: Cruz is getting closer and closer to his return. He's not the WR he used to be, but Cruz should play as a no.3 receiver for the Giants behind superstar Odell Beckham Jr. and rookie Sterling Shepard.

Giants | Victor Cruz will return Monday (Sun Aug 21, 03:57 PM) - New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) will return to practice Monday, Aug. 22, although it will not be a full practice. He could practice fully on Tuesday, Aug. 23, however, according to head coach Ben McAdoo.

Giants | Victor Cruz not ready to play (Sat Aug 20, 02:41 PM) - New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) will not play Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Buffalo Bills. He will continue working with a trainer Sunday, Aug. 21, and plans to practice Monday, Aug. 22 in hopes of playing against the New York Jets next week.

Our View: Cruz is undraftable in redraft leagues, and the Giants legion of excellent undrafted and journeyman wide outs should make the decision of whether to keep Cruz or someone like Roger Lewis, Darius Powe, or Myles White difficult for the team.

Giants | Victor Cruz sits again (Thu Aug 18, 01:33 PM) - New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 18.

Our View: We have no real hope that Cruz will be a factor this year and it truly seems as if he might not even make it back on the field. His body has clearly broken down.
