On the fourth and goal, Eli Manning targeted Victor Cruz in the back right corner of the end zone. It was a perfect throw, but Cruz somehow let the ball slip through his hands. When Cruz stayed down on the play, it was clear why the ball went through Cruz’s hands: He was in excruciating pain, having just torn his patellar tendon.
The injury will most likely end Cruz’s season.
Long recovery for Cruz. More difficult recovery than Achilles repair historically. Not many have returned to be the same player afterwards.

Thoughts go out to Victor Cruz. Get better.
