Good news for New York Giants fans, and fantasy owners alike: Wide receiver Victor Cruz was out of his walking boot and crutches, walking around the team’s facility on Monday, August 26, meaning that he is making progress in his rehab from a heel injury he suffered in the Giants’ second preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts.
The receiver is aiming to make it back just in time for the Giants season opener against the Dallas Cowboys on September 8. “That is definitely a target date for me,” said the receiver. “I think I want to come out and get some good days of practice in as well once the doctors let me do so.”
Cruz, who has not been participating in football activities since his injury on August 18th, hopes to join his team on the practice field as early as Monday to get ready for the season opener in Dallas. “I am going to work diligently this week while the team is away and focus on getting myself right and getting ready to practice potentially by next week,” said Cruz.
The Giants, who have been struggling on offense, definitely need the receiver to come back as soon as possible and provide some sort of spark for the team.
