Victor Cruz is back a lot sooner than anyone expected.
After missing all of last season and being limited to six games over the past two, the New York Giants receiver was a full-go as the team held its first practice at training camp Friday under new coach Ben McAdoo.
With the Giants indoors because of overnight rain, the workout looked more like a slow-speed organized team activity.
Cruz didn't seem to care. He participated in every drill. He caught passes. He worked at recovering fumbles, knocking off some of the rust. The nearby Paterson product didn't show any signs of being limited either by his knee or the calf injury that plagued him last year.
