Draft Scout Victor Cruz News
12/26/13 - --WR Victor Cruz (knee) has been declared out for Sunday's game.
12/19/13 - WR Victor Cruz has been declared out for Sunday's game. Cruz, who in addition to trying to recover from a concussion is also dealing with a knee injury which head coach Tom Coughlin indicated was the more concerning for the long-term of the two.
According to Coughlin, Cruz, who was already declared out for Sunday's game at Detroit, recently sought a second opinion on his left knee, injured in Sunday's loss against the Seahawks, from noted orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews, a source confirmed.
That second opinion actually turned out to be for an arthroscopic debridement of his left knee, according to the team, who in their announcement said that Cruz passed the NFL's concussion protocol.
An arthroscopic debridement is a procedure to remove damaged cartilage or bone.
It was not known how long of a recovery period Cruz would need, but presumably given the timing and that no ligaments were affected, he would be in no danger of missing training camp next year.
12/18/13 - WR Victor Cruz (concussion/knee) did not practice on Wednesday and is not expected to play on Sunday.
12/17/13 - WR Victor Cruz is currently two yards shy of recording his third-straight 1,000-yard receiving season. Cruz initially had the mark, but his 16-yard reception on a play in which he was injured was reversed, leaving him with 73 catches for 998 yards. It's unknown if Cruz, who suffered a knee sprain and a concussion on that reception reversal, will have a chance to top the 1,000-yard mark.
12/17/13 - WR Victor Cruz (knee/concussion) was believed to be undergoing tests on Monday to determine the severity of his injuries. Coughlin said that he didn't have an update regarding Cruz's status.
