The Giants wide receiver wore a walking boot on his left foot and leaned on crutches during a conversation with reporters Tuesday. Cruz confirmed he suffered a heel contusion in Sunday's preseason loss to the Indianapolis Colts. An MRI exam revealed "some blood in there," but Cruz -- who said he was hurt on a pass-interference play -- confirmed he didn't suffer a tear, according to the New York Daily News.
Cruz, now armed with a fat new contract, must be fully operational for this offense to sing. The clock is ticking.
