Victor Cruz did not return to practice on Thursday for the New York Giants, and ominous-sounding reports coming from a variety of beat writers make it sound like the news about the star wide receiver might not be good.

Per Pat Traina, Cruz has now been declared out for Sunday.

Cruz is dealing with a concussion, but multiple reports via Twitter indicate that what has been reported as a knee sprain is more significant in holding him back.

Cruz was injured when he had to leap to try to make a catch during Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Also not practicing for the Giants on Thursday were defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder), guard David Diehl (knee), running back Peyton Hillis (knee), cornerback Trumaine McBride (groin) and safety Cooper Taylor (hamstring).

Wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan (knee) did return to practice Thursday. After catching a career-high seven passes vs. Seattle Jernigan will likely man the slot Sunday in Cruz's absence. Jernigan was limited in practice, as were defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins (quad/shin), guard James Brewer (ankle) and cornerback Terrell Thomas (knee).
