Victor Cruz: Injured knee at '75-80 percent'
New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz says his knee is at "70-80 percent" after tearing his patellar tendon in Week 6 last year, according to NJ.com.
Cruz reportedly said he is now allowed to cut during rehab.
"We got (to cutting). We started running some intermediate routes on air and stuff like that. It's feeling good. It's feeling good so far. I think I'm 75-80 percent right now. It's just a matter of building it."
After going undrafted out of UMass in 2010, Cruz, 28, broke onto the scene with 82 catches for 1,536 yards in 2011. He has accumulated 3,963 yards and 24 touchdowns over the course of his career.
In six games in 2014, Cruz caught 23 passes for 337 yards.
The Giants open the 2015 season on September 13 against the Dallas Cowboys.
