    Cruz's statement on Nicks progress a little disappointing

    I just read this statement by Cruz on Nicks progress and I was a little disappointed. I was under the impression he would be ready to go by summer camp:


    "He looks good. He's walking again on his own so that's definitely a good sign," Cruz said at the Queens Theatre at a Time Warner Cable event to promote his memoir "Victor Cruz: Out of the Blue," which is schedule to be released July 17. "He told me he'll be ready and he told me he'll take training camp to continue rehabbing and continue to get his foot back right, but I definitely expect him to be ready by game one."
    Nicks' original diagnosis was 12 weeks, which meant he was due to return August 17. That is still a possibility, but his prediction of the start of training camp isn't.

    I thought week 1 was pushing it to the max.

    Training camp was never going to be possible.

    Where did your read that? Everything I've read since it happened has said he'd be questionable for the start of the season.

    Better off he stays out till real games. Can't have a season ending injury in a preseason game of you are in rehab
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    I'm very confused about all this as well

    I had thought week 1 was worst case scenario...

    now Nicks supposedly told cruz thats his target? I thought in all likelihood he mid-camp he would be good to go

    Damn.

    Even if he were "capable" of running midcamp, I wouldn't have objected to still shutting him down for preseason.

    The more time he spends off the foot, the better it looks for Week 17 and after, not week 1.

    Injuries happen and then we see who's the "next man up." The timing is a plus since we have all of the young bucks eager to take advantage of Nick's reps. We will be better off in the long term.
