Giants WR Victor Cruz (patellar tear) said he’s “about 80 percent there” with his rehab.
“I think it’s just a matter of continuing to build the strength for the last leg of it,” Cruz said Wednesday, via the New York Post. “I’ve been running some routes for about two weeks now, and there’s been no pain, no swelling or anything like that, which are all good signs.”
Lions president Tom Lewand mentioned that they isn’t a trade in the works to a defensive tackle.
“As you know, we’re always looking at ways to upgrade,” Lewand said, via Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.“[General manager] Martin [Mayhew] is relentless when it comes to looking at ways to improve the roster. When he gets done with one transaction, his focus is on making another one. So as you know, we never rest in those ways and we look at any opportunity that we might come our way to improve the team and evaluate it.”
