Found August 20, 2013 on My Sports Rumors:
New York Giants star wide receiver Victor Cruz showed up to practice today wearing a walking boot and using a pair of crutches. The injury is still being classified as a bruised heel which means Cruz isn’t worried about playing week one against the Dallas Cowboys. Even so the Giants sent his MRI to a specialist as a second opinion. “Hopefully I can be back before then,” said Cruz, who was upbeat Tuesday and didn’t seem overly concerned about his injury. “But I do envision myself being on the practice field getting ready for that Cowboys game and getting ready to go down to Texas to play those guys. “The MRI just showed some blood in there in the area where the swelling is, and that was about it. No tear — nothing wrong with the bone — everything’s fine, which is a good sign, which is what I was worried about.” The Giants have sent the results of Cruz’s MRI to a specialist to confirm the team’s preliminary diagnosis of a bruised heel, a league source told ESPN.
