Wednesday March 25th, 2015

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said that wide receiver Victor Cruz looks good as he continues his comeback from a torn patellar tendon, Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post reports.

Coughlin also said Cruz has just started running and that he looks a little lighter.

Cruz, 28, was injured during the Giants’ game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Oct. 12. In six games last season, he caught 23 balls for 337 yards and a touchdown. He has played his entire six-year career with the Giants.

With Cruz out of the lineup, Odell Beckham Jr. had 91 catches for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns in the final 12 games of the season en route to being named Offensive Rookie of the Year.

In their first season running the West Coast offense under offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, the Giants finished No. 10 in yards and No. 13 in scoring.
