New York Giants headlines for Tuesday, 5/19.

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, New York Giants fans! Let's check your Tuesday headlines, which include something you probably aren't going to want to hear.

A warning for Giants' WR Victor Cruz

Everything we have heard from Victor Cruz as he rehabs from last season's gruesome torn patella tendon has been optimistic. Dallas Cowboys' running back Ryan Williams has been where Cruz is, and offered a dose of reality on Monday.

"Growing up I thought that the worst injury you could have is the ACL," Williams told ESPN. "Nah, when you tear that patella tendon and your kneecap shifts to your thigh, that's something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy."

Drafted in the second round by the Arizona Cardinals in 2011, Williams suffered a torn patella tendon during a preseason game. He missed the entire season. In 2012, he played in five carried, carrying 58 times and averaging 2.8 yards per carry. He was not active for a single game in 2013, and spent 2014 on the Dallas practice squad.

Williams was asked about the injury because Cowboys' cornerback Morris Claiborne suffered one late last season.

Damontre Moore: 'It's my time'

Giants defensive end Damontre Moore didn't mess around when he enrolled at Texas A&M for the spring semester, taking seven classes and earning three As, three Bs and one C. Now that he is headed back to work with the Giants, Moore is hoping to finally realize his on-field potential.

"I know it's going to be a breakout year," Moore said. "I worked my [butt] off this whole offseason. It's my time."
