>> FIVE THINGS WE LEARNED AT PRACTICE
WR VICTOR CRUZ
Coming off the Giants’ second preseason game in which Cruz again was not targeted, the wide receiver was asked Monday if he was concerned that he hasn’t seen much action in the team’s passing game. “No, I’m not concerned,” he responded. “I’m just taking it day-by-day, week-by-week, seeing how things unfold. It’s still early to be talking about passes and looks and things like that.”
Cruz sat out yesterday’s practice to rest a sore knee but returned on Tuesday, hauling in a handful of passes from Eli Manning throughout practice. We’ll see more of No. 80 as the Giants install more of the offense in the next three weeks leading up to the regular-season opener.

Offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo said before practice that the tight ends just need to keep pushing forward, as does the offense as a whole. And that’s what they did on a windy and wet Tuesday at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. Adrien Robinson and Daniel Fells both had catches, while Kellen Davis pulled in a touchdown from Curtis Painter in the red zone.
“We have a plan on how we’re going to install,” McAdoo said. “We’re going to continue installing and continue to review some things we’ve done earlier. We have a plan in place for that. You never want to sit on your hands.”
