The Giants’ wideout wasn’t sure exactly what happened at first, just that the injury was pretty ‘sore’. Tests later revealed a jammed heel and the Giants, wanting to be overly cautious with their recently re-signed reciever say he will not play any more during the preseason.
Per Art Stapleton:
Don’t expect to see Victor Cruz on field in game until Dallas Sept. 8, per source.
#NYG believe heel contusion will heal w/ rest, treatment
As Stapleton suggests, there’s little anybody can do for a heel jam/bruise outside of rest and pain relievers so it’s best Cruz rest the injury with hopes of being 100% come Week 1.
Cruz’s absence from the remainder of the postseason is simply a precautionary measure put in place by the Giants, not because of his inability to play through the pain.
