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.

Giants' Victor Cruz: Doing well in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Giants GM Jerry Reese said the team's doctors are pleased with Cruz's (calf) progress.

Having last played in a game in October 2014, the 29-year-old Cruz agreed this offseason to reduce his 2016 salary from $5.5 million to $1.3 million, with the opportunity to earn some of that money back through incentives. A return to anything approaching his peak form is highly unlikely, but it does seem he has a shot to participate in offseason activities, and there's not much talent behind Odell Beckham on the pre-draft depth chart. If he's truly healthy, Cruz could compete for a key role.

Giants' Victor Cruz: Continues to improve in rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Victor Cruz continues to improve in his rehabilitation from last year's season-ending injury to his left calf, NJ.com reports.

Cruz last took an NFL snap in October of 2014, when he suffered a torn right patellar tendon, and a calf injury stemming from training camp 2015 lingered long enough to force a stay on injured reserve. After making enough progress in his recovery to start running by early February, he revealed on his personal Instagram account that he's able to take on a number of activities, including but not limited to sprinting, jumping on boxes, and weight training. If he follows his current pace and avoids a setback, he may not be a negligible participant in the New York Giants ' offseason program.
