New York Giants WR Victor Cruz announced Monday that he’s undergoing season-ending surgery on his calf.
Cruz ruptured his patellar tendon last year, which cost him the remainder of the season and limited him to appearing in just six games.
However, once he was getting close to returning, Cruz unfortunately suffered the calf injury that ultimately cost him the entire 2015 season.
Cruz, 28, is in the third year of his six-year, $45.879 million contract that included $15.625 million guaranteed and a $9.5 million signing bonus. He’ll make base salaries of $6.15 million (2015), $7.9 million (2016), $7.4 million (2017), and $8.4 million (2018) over the remainder of the agreement.
In 2014, Cruz caught 23 passes for 337 yards receiving and a touchdown for the Giants over the course of six games.
