Cruz caught three of four targets for 30 yards in the Giants' wild card loss Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Cruz finished the season with 39 catches for 586 yards and one score in 15 games. He averaged a robust 15.0 YPC and a passable 8.1 YPT and made three catches of 40-plus yards, but at 30 and with Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard in the fold, Cruz's future in New York is in doubt.

Cruz secured eight of 13 targets for 84 yards in Thursday's 24-19 loss to the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran receiver turned in his most prolific performance of the season on a night when Eli Manning put the ball up a whopping 63 times. Cruz saw a season high in targets and converted those into the most catches he's notched in 2016, while also notching a 29-yard long reception for the second consecutive week. The production was particularly encouraging, considering that Cruz had not recorded more than one reception in any game over the last six. His veteran savvy could come in handy in what is shaping up as a pivotal Week 17 tilt versus the Redskins.

Cruz recorded one reception for four yards in Sunday's win over the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Cruz's quiet season continues, as he hasn't found the end zone since Week 1. He hasn't had over one reception in his past five games, as rookie Sterling Shepard has solidified himself as the No. 2 option at wideout. The veteran will look to turn things around next week against the Lions.

Cruz plans to discuss his role with coach Ben McAdoo after not being targeted in Sunday's loss to the Steelers, Tom Rock of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cruz entered Sunday with just one reception in three straight games, and although each of those catches went for over 35 yards, he wasn't even thrown to against Pittsburgh. That came despite Cruz playing 26 snaps, which it's worth mentioning trailed Roger Lewis' 29 plays Sunday. While Cruz says he isn't unhappy about his recent lack of involvement in the passing game, he also intends to clear things up with coach McAdoo, who had to respond to No. 2 wideout Sterling Shepard not being targeted in Week 12.

Cruz continued his tradition of making one big catch per game Sunday, as he hauled in one of five targets for 37 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Cruz has had one catch in each of the last three weeks for between 37 and 48 yards. It's more of a curiosity than anything fantasy-actionable, however.

Cruz caught one of his two targets for 48 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Cruz's snaps have been reduced of late, and he's no more than a tertiary option at this point in his career.

Cruz (ankle) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game against the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Contained to limited practices all week as he tends to a low-ankle sprain, Cruz will end his DNP streak at one contest. While he has to jostle with Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard for targets on a weekly basis, Cruz should be able to make an impact against a Bears defense that has surrendered 194.8 receiving yards per game and 10 touchdowns in nine contests to wideouts this season.

Cruz (ankle) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

In the first full session of the week, Cruz remained a limited participant for a second straight day, despite assertions from the wide receiver that he had "no problems" with his workload. According to the New York Daily News, he's tending to a low-right ankle sprain, but Raanan noted the Giants intend to have the veteran back in action Sunday against the Bears. Cruz's removal from the injury report Friday would pave the way for a return.

Cruz (ankle) was limited on the Giants' estimated injury report Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Ben McAdoo contained his players to a jog-through just two days removed from Monday night's win against the Bengals. If his potential activity is any indication, Cruz will partake in at least a limited fashion Thursday. How he emerges from the renewed exertion on his low-ankle sprain will determine his availability for Sunday's contest with the Bears.

Cruz (ankle) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Cruz didn't press his luck during a mere jog-through, with the aim of a return to Thursday's full session, per Art Stapleton of The Record. Carrying a low-ankle sprain, Cruz may ease into Week 11 prep, but Thursday's injury report will reveal where he stands in his recovery.
