We forget sometimes that players and coaches at the professional level can sometimes turn into fans, as well. Saturday’s expected return to action by Victor Cruz of the New York Giants has brought out the fan in players, coaches and stars from other sports.
The face u make when u make when you've been working your tail off to get back from adversity/setbacks, injuries, etc etc and u make your return to the practice field(full go) with your squad! Man I'm proud of you bro, more than u think. Continue to push forward and care nothing about the naysayers. Use it for motivation!! @teamvic #StriveForGreatness #BeastMode #YesMyBrosPlayForTheGiants #IWantThemToKillEverySundayMondayThursdayGame #AsLongAsTheCowboysWin Hahahaha!
I’m excited for him. He’s a long time teammate and friend. I know what he’s been through and I know it’s been a tough road these last two years. I know he wants to be out there so I’m excited for him to have that possibility. Obviously it’s preseason, it would be nice to get him out there but when it comes to the regular season to get him some action, some catches, a touchdown, that would be special.
Just seeing him back out there catching some balls, bursting a little bit. It feels good. It feels right. ... t’s great to see Vic back out there. He’s been through quite a lot.
It will be fun. Look, what would you feel like? Aren’t you excited to see him play too? Everybody is asking because you are excited. Well listen, I am human just like you all. I want to see it too. That is my teammate, that is someone who is explosive, who changes the game and is going to be a big part of this offense and this team, so of course we want him out there. ...
It is fun to see him out there. Eight-Oh is a guy you can’t replace. He brings a type of energy to the field that nobody else can. He is explosive, he is fast, he can catch, he does everything that you want from a receiving standpoint and he is a good leader, so having him back out there on the field is going to make a difference. He is a big part of this offense.
