East Rutherford, NJ, United States (4E Sports) – New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee for removal of cartilage Thursday and will likely miss the Giants’ final two games.
The operation is not categorized as a major one.
He was injured in the third quarter of the Giants’ 23-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks Sunday when he jumped to catch a pass from Eli Manning and landed on his head while being tackled by cornerback Jeremy Lane.
Cruz was cleared Wednesday from a possible concussion but he injured his knee.
The 27-year-old receiver signed a five-year, $43-million extension in the offseason and was the team’s steadiest offensive performer.
Cruz likely will finish 2 yards shy of his third straight 1,000-yard season. He leads the team in receptions (73) and yards (998) and has four touchdown catches.
