PHILADELPHIA (AP) New York wide receiver Victor Cruz was carted off the field after tearing the patellar tendon in his right knee in third quarter in the Giants' 27-0 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night.

Cruz went down after a leaping attempt at a fourth-and-6 pass with the Giants trailing 20-0. He immediately grabbed his knee and was crying with his hands on his face as he was taken off the field.

Cruz was a Pro Bowl pick in 2012 and is known for his salsa dance after scoring touchdowns. The injury is expected to end his season.
