Victor Cruz has undergone arthroscopic surgery on his knee after picking up an injury for the New York Giants in their defeat against the Seattle Seahawks, reports ESPN.
The injury took place in the third quarter of the match at the MetLife Stadium on Sunday as Cruz landed on his head after receiving a pass from Eli Manning and being tackled by Jeremy Lane.
However with Cruz expected to be out of action for the remainder of the season, the Giants haven't placed their wide receiver on the injury list meaning he could still feature again this year.
Although that looks unlikely despite the operation to his left knee, which saw the removal of removal of cartilage, not being deemed serious.
Without Cruz the Giants will now look to pick up their form after back-to-back defeats. They take on the Lions this Sunday before taking on the Washington Redskins at the MetLife Stadium.
However it remains to be seen as to whether Cruz's season is over.
