New York Giants fans could use some good news these days, and wide receiver Victor Cruz provided some during an appearance Tuesday on Sirius XM NFL Radio. Cruz told hosts Bruce Murray and Rich Gannon that he expects to avoid the PUP list and be ready to practice when the Giants report for training camp on July 30.

"From the training staff, the coaches and the front office people, I think everyone's under the assumption that I'll be ready to go," Cruz said on Sirius. "I don't think PUP will be an option. Obviously, if it comes about then that's a conversation I have to have with my superiors. It seems like I'm on track to be ready for training camp and, God willing, be out there Week One."

Cruz said he is "feeling good" and has been running running routes and "getting my bearings back." He does expect that the team will limit his reps.
