Intriguing Storylines To Watch At New York Giants Minicamp

1. Does Victor Cruz Practice in Some Capacity?

Before this weekend, this was not even a question. From the beginning of organized team activities head coach Ben McAdoo has repeated that the team is “looking for him to get back here, and he’s working to get back, for training camp,” according to ESPN’s Dan Graziano. However, comments from Cruz himself this weekend could hint at an earlier return.

His highly anticipated return to the practice field may come this week. After spending most of his spring working on the side with a trainer rehabbing his calf injury, he may be doing some real work with his teammates:

“I’m feeling good. I ran some routes this past Friday, some full speed routes and everything went well. We’ll see what happens next week. They might throw me out there with the wolves a little bit so we’ll see how it goes,” Cruz said this weekend at his foundation’s Father’s Day Football Experience and Skills Challenge.

This could be Cruz petitioning to the coaching staff that he is 100% healthy and ready to go. However one thing is certain, Victor Cruz will not see the practice field until the coaches are absolutely convinced of a full and complete recovery.

Was Victor was being overly optimistic with these comments or is he actually ready to return this week? We will find out soon.
