At a Giants press conference today Victor Cruz addressed the media, but wearing a walking boot. Here are his thoughts about playing week 1 against the Dallas Cowboys:

“Once swelling goes down, I think I’ll be ok. Hopefully I can be ready before two weeks from now. I do envision playing against Cowboys in opener.”

It never looks good when you are on crutches and a boot two weeks before the season but it seems like Cruz and the Giants are optimistic that he will be ready to go week 1.
