The New York Giants have listed wide receiver Victor Cruz and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie as out for their Week 3 game against the Washington Redskins.

Cruz has not practiced in weeks and missed New York’s first two games with a calf strain he suffered in August. Cruz has not played a game since last October, when he tore the patella tendon in his right knee.

Rodgers-Cromartie will miss Thursday’s game with a concussion he suffered in Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons. Rodgers-Cromartie is currently in the NFL’s mandated concussion protocol.

Last season, Cruz caught 23 passes for 337 yards and one touchdown before his injury. Rodgers-Cromartie signed a five-year deal with the Giants in 2014, and has missed only four regular season games in his career.
