Reports: Cruz And Baas Expect To Be Ready For Giants' Season Opener

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Seeing Victor Cruz and David Baas on crutches isn't a pleasant sight for Giants fans.

Not to worry though, as both players delivered confident updates to the media on Tuesday.

According to WFAN Giants reporter Paul Dottino, both players expect to be ready for the Giants' September 8 season opener in Dallas.

Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News noticed Cruz wearing a walking boot on his left foot. Baas was wearing a thick brace on his left knee, while David Diehl was wearing a wrap on his right hand.

Cruz bruised his left heel in the first quarter of New York's 20-12 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. According to Samuel, the star wide receiver has been using ice and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs to keep down the swelling.

Baas sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee on the opening series in Sunday's preseason game. An MCL sprain generally takes up to six weeks to heal.

Giants fans are crossing their fingers that the duo will be ready for Big Blue's Week 1 clash at AT&T Stadium.
