Victor Cruz injury: Giants WR suffers bruised heel, x-rays negative

New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz left the team's preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday with a foot injury.

Cruz immediately went to the locker room for x-rays after the injury. Before exiting the game, Cruz did not have a single catch.

The Giants got wide receiver Hakeem Nicks back from injury on Sunday but the two stars can't seem to stay on the field together. Cruz signed a six-year contract extension over the offseason after two standout years in New York.

At this point, the Giants will be waiting for the results of the x-rays. Cruz has been durable throughout his two-year career, catching over 80 passes in both seasons.

UPDATE: The x-rays on Cruz' foot were negative. He has a bruised heel, so the Giants appear to have dodged a bullet.
