New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz was a full participant in Monday's practice for the first time this preseason as he continues to recover from a knee injury, according to Cruz, who underwent surgery to repair a torn patellar tendon roughly 10 months ago, could participate in the team's preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday. "I feel good. The knee is 100 percent," Cruz said. "[Sunday] was probably my most physically enduring practice, in terms of limitations. You know they have been keeping me down to a number of plays per day. {Sunday] was my most. I felt good. Woke up this morning, no injury, no pain, no swelling or anything. I feel like I've crossed that bridge. [I need to] Get into a game, have a catch or two, get through it." Regardless of whether Cruz participates in this week's preseason game, he looks more and more as if he will be ready for the start of the regular season.

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said Monday that wide receiver Victor Cruz, who is recovering from a serious knee injury, will play at least one preseason game, according to Newsday. Cruz suffered a torn patellar tendon last October and has reportedly done enough in training camp practices to justify playing in a game before the regular season. "We'll pick when he goes, but he's shown us everything," Coughlin said. "[Sunday] he did everything. He and Odell [Beckham Jr.] both had a full practice yesterday and both did well and are both back and ready to go today. He's getting to where he needs to be and his mindset is outstanding. We brought him to the game for a reason. We put him in to the workout in Cincinnati for a reason. He didn't get a chance to play in the game but he saw it, he was into it, he was involved, he was mentally involved, and he's looking forward to going to the next step."

Cruz (knee) said Tuesday that he doesn't think the Physically Unable to Perform list is an option for him, Sirius XM NFL Radio reports.

Cruz hopes to be ready for the start of training camp, despite missing OTAS and June minicamp after suffering a torn patellar tendon in October. His optimism is a good sign that the knee is healing faster than expected, but there's still a very real chance he opens training camp on the PUP list. There wouldn't be much for the Giants to lose, as Cruz can still be activated from the list before Week 1.

Cruz (knee) hopes to avoid starting training camp on the Giants' physically-unable-to-perform list, the Daily News reports.

Cruz, who is bouncing from the patellar tendon injury that ended his 2014 season, suggests that he believes he could already pass the team's pre-training camp conditioning test at this stage, while optimistically noting that "by late July, early August, (he) should be somewhere around 100 percent." For now, however, Cruz is among the Giants who are not participating in practice during the team's current minicamp.

Cruz (knee) relayed Tuesday that he was "75-to-80 percent" healthy, Jordan Raanan of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Cruz has been testing his knee by cutting and running routes, but he's not yet to the point in his recovery where he can practice his techniques against defensive backs. The 28-year-old wideout is working his way back from a patellar tendon tear and remains optimistic that he'll be ready to go for Week 1.

Cruz, who is bouncing back from a patellar tendon tear, believes that he will be available to play in Week 1, reports.

At this stage, Cruz isn't cutting on his knee just yet, but he has been running in a straight line for about a month now, which lends some plausibility to his optimism on that front. With that in mind, Cruz notes, "there's zero doubts that I'll be playing in that first game." Such a notion is echoed by GM Jerry Reese, who indicated Thursday that Cruz has "looked good, he's running pretty good, right now and he's scheduled to be back ready for the opener for us." That said, Reese cautioned, "until you get out there and turn it loose, you never know what a guy is going to do. But he looks great right now." With Odell Beckham Jr. and Rueben Randle also in the team's wideout mix, the Giants can probably afford to ease Cruz back in, but either way, it's encouraging to see Cruz heading in the right direction in the wake of the serious knee injury that he sustained in Week 6 of the 2014 season.
