Published Add your comment

After suffering tough defeats in the first two games of the 2015 NFL season, things are starting to look up for the New York Giants.

After securing their first win of the campaign on Thursday night against the Washington Redskins, the Big Blue have now received some good news as they prepare for week four against the Buffalo Bills.

Good news

Victor Cruz, the team's veteran wide receiver, who has been out of action through injury for almost 12 months, has today promised to start the Giants' divisional match up.

The 28-year-old gave the confident message to the Giants fan base in a self-shot video for Bleacher Report:

"I'm really excited to start my next game, to play my first game of this young 2015 season," Cruz explained.

"I'm excited to team up with Odell [Beckham Jr.], man its going to be fun. I just wanted to make sure I'm 100-percent before going back out there. I want to be clicking on all cylinders."

Although the video doesn't specifically mention Buffalo, the timing of its release all but confirms Cruz is preparing to go versus Rex Ryan and co.

Injury nightmare

Cruz last took to the gridiron way back on October 12, 2014, in a game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Suffering a torn patellar tendon in the fixture, he has been out ever since.

There were hopes he would be able to link up with the likes of Odell Beckham and Rueben Randle from the off in 2015, but a calf strain issue has ruled him out until now.

Cruz's arrival in time for a tough week four match-up against the Bills would certainly help Tom Coughlin finally expand his offense beyond the OBJ-dominated theme that has been in effect for months now.

Giants fans: Can Cruz be the difference-maker? And how will it affect the team's offense? Have your say in the comments below...
