Giants | Victor Cruz to have lengthy rehab

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 13:28:29 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) will rehab at the team's facility for the next two to three months and believes he will need four to eight months to recover from his surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz will miss the rest of this season and could also miss some offseason workouts because of his rehab. Cruz likely will be lower on wide receiver rankings for 2015, but owners will need to see how he is doing before considering drafting him.

Giants | Victor Cruz's career in jeopardy?

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 11:09:59 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) won't ever be the same after his season-ending knee injury, according to Dr. David Chao. "He can return to 100 percent, but it (his knee) is a car in a car accident," said Chao, a former NFL team physician. "Never brand new when fixed." There is no timetable for Cruz's rehab, and there is no prognosis for the rest of his career. His injury could rob him of his explosiveness and change-of-direction ability. A handful of NFL players have returned from this type of injury, but none of them discovered their elite form. A torn patellar tendon can't be fixed arthroscopically, so it needs a massive open procedure that will require lengthy and painful rehab. Cruz will need to rebuild the muscles around the tendon, and it'll likely be six months before he can even try to run again.

Fantasy Tip: It's a tough break for Cruz. A lot will depend on how his rehab goes as far as his chances of returning next season to make a fantasy football impact. The Giants will be even more determined to develop their young receivers like Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham Jr.

Updating previous reports, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) is scheduled to undergo surgery to repair his torn patellar tendon.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz probably will miss the rest of the 2014 because of the injury, so owners should check on the waiver wire for available receivers. Odell Beckham Jr. likely will have a bigger role in the offense and could be an option for owners looking for help at the position.

Giants | Victor Cruz tears patella tendon

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 19:27:37 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) was taken off on a cart after suffering a torn patellar tendon in his right knee. As he was carted off, he was sobbing on the way back to the locker room.

Fantasy Tip: No matter what side of fantasy or the NFC East rivalry you're on, that was sad watching the undrafted free agent turned Pro Bowler leave in tears and terrible pain. For fantasy purposes, Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham Jr. will climb the depth chart, and preseason star rookie Corey Washington could even see time. Cruz's 2014 season is over, and he can be dropped in all formats.
