Report: Victor Cruz feels 'no pain' in troublesome calf

He got hurt. He got better. He threw a party. He got hurt again.

Are we finally about to see Victor Cruz back on the field for the New York Giants?

Every game, all season

Art Stapleton of The Record reported Tuesday that there is "guarded optimism" on the health of Cruz, who feels no pain in his calf, according to a source. Cruz is scheduled for an MRI on Wednesday. If it comes back clean, the wide receiver could gain clearance to practice as soon as this week.

Cruz remains a longshot to make his season debut on Sunday against the Cowboys, but he could be in position for a return in Week 8 against the Saints.

Cruz strained his calf during training camp, then suffered a setback in practice on Sept. 30. The calf injury blew up what had previously been a spotless rehab from surgery to repair the patellar tear in his knee that brought his 2014 season to a painful and premature end.

The Giants could use the old Victor Cruz right about now. The offense fell to pieces in Monday night's loss to the Eagles.
