Giants' Victor Cruz: Participating in minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cruz (calf) is taking part in individual drills at Tuesday's mandatory minicamp practice, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports.

A report last week said Cruz wouldn't participate in the three-day minicamp, but he's apparently ready to run routes and catch passes without facing a defender. This bodes well for his training camp availability, as he was already tentatively expected to be ready for the start of camp. It remains to be seen if Cruz is still effective, having last played in a game Nov. 12, 2014. He may also have to compete with rookie second-rounder Sterling Shepard for snaps, though the Giants figure to once again rank among the NFL leaders in use of three-wide formations.

Giants' Victor Cruz: Unlikely to participate in mini-camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz (calf) is unlikely to participate in the Giants' mandatory mini-camp next week, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.

The Giants are hoping that Cruz will be ready for the start of training camp, but his chances of participating in their upcoming mini-camp appear to be slim. Given that Cruz missed all of last season due to lingering complications from the torn patella tendon he suffered midway through the 2014 campaign, the Giants will likely continue to be cautious with the veteran wideout. With Cruz seemingly sidelined until at least July, rookie Sterling Shepard could see increased reps with the first team during mini-camp.

Giants' Victor Cruz: Training camp return targeted
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cruz did not participate in team drills during the Giants' first day of OTAs on Monday, NJ.com reports.

Cruz was seen working with team trainers on the sideline during Monday's session, after which head coach Ben McAdoo said "the goal is to have Cruz back for training camp." Following a significant knee injury and subsequent calf injury, Cruz hasn't played since October of 2014, so the Giants are rightfully exercising caution and holding him out of team drills for the time being. While Cruz is limited to individual work, rookie second-rounder Sterling Shepard should continue to receive a thorough introduction to the Giants' offense.

Giants' Victor Cruz: Participating in some drills
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cruz (calf) said he's been on a "pitch count" during team drills, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports.

Cruz's participation in offseason workouts, albeit in a limited capacity, bodes well for his availability for OTAs and training camp. Giants GM Jerry Reese said in April that he expects Cruz to be ready for camp, but it's unclear what the veteran wideout will bring to the table, having last played in October of 2014. Cruz will compete for playing time alongside Odell Beckham in a wideout group that also includes second-round rookie Sterling Shepard.

Giants' Victor Cruz: Feeling '100 percent' at the moment
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cruz (calf) stated Friday that he's "100 percent" at this time, NJ.com reports. "I'm feeling great," he said. "Workouts have been going amazing. Each day, it gets better and better. I'm excited to continue to train, continue that pattern, and see where it takes me...I feel good. No injuries, no ailments, nothing hurts, no pain."

Cruz may just be attempting to reassure himself and, by proxy, the media after a pair of injury-riddled seasons. In fact, his last NFL snap occurred in October of 2014, as he's dealt with a torn right patellar tendon and calf injury in the interim. Cruz's comments occurred a few days removed from general manager Jerry Reese relaying that the wide receiver will be "full go" by training camp, so avoiding any setbacks as the offseason program continues will be key in assessing his potential to produce once draft season arrives.
