Two years removed from his original ACL injury in Philly, Victor Cruz is still sidelined in training camp due to a nagging groin injury. The days of watching Cruz dice up defensive backs to score touchdowns and do the salsa in celebration are unfortunately, long gone. I was a believer in Cruz for as long as possible, now this is just unbearable to watch anymore. The guy can't stay healthy, once one thing recovers another thing breaks down, just like my Volkswagen. Sterling Shepard can easily make up for what we are losing with Cruz. At this point in their careers, Shepard definitely has the edge in the speed and quickness aspect of their games. It's a young mans game now, Cruz does not have age on his side and if he can't find a way onto the field soon he's going to be out of a job. I'd love nothing more than watch the electric Cruz from back in the day come out opening night against Dallas and help us destroy those window lickers, as of right now though that looks real doubtful.
