New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz was not supposed to work against Cincinnati Bengals defenders during the two joint practices this week. Wednesday, however, Cruz took a handful of reps against Cincinnati as the two teams concluded their practice sessions. No one got injured. There were no fights. There was peace and harmony throughout the land.
There will be a walk-thru Thursday, and the two teams will meet in their preseason opener Friday night at Paul Brown Stadium. Cruz will not play Friday, having already been declared out by coach Tom Coughlin.
