Giants WR Cruz slowed by calf strain


The Sports Xchange

New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz might sit out Saturday’s preseason game because of a calf strain he dubbed a minor hiccup unrelated to his 2014 season-ending knee injury.

Cruz, Odell Beckham Jr. and Reuben Randle all sat out Wednesday’s practice.

Head coach Tom Coughlin said Thursday that Cruz would be unlikely for Saturday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Cruz said the calf injury is on the leg opposite his repaired patellar tendon.

“It’s not related to the knee at all. Just a small hiccup,” Cruz said.

Dwayne Harris could play a bigger role this week depending on how the receiver depth chart shakes out given multiple health questions.
