For at least this week, the New York Giants won’t have wide receiver Victor Cruz as he is dealing with a knee sprain he suffered during Sunday’s 23-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. It was bad enough that he’s undergone season-ending arthroscopic surgery.
To replace him, the Giants called up practice squad receiver Julian Talley. Talley has yet to play in an NFL game and has been in training camp with the Giants the last two seasons.
If Cruz’s season is over, he’ll finish with 73 catches for 998 yards and four TDs, which would be the first time in his career that he’s fallen short of the 1,000-yard mark.
