Victor Cruz tore patellar tendon

In all likelihood, the Giants will be without Victor Cruz for the remainder of the season.

The veteran receiver, known for his celebratory salsa dance, tore his patellar tendon during Sunday night's Giants-Eagles game. It was a non-contact injury, with Cruz going down in agonizing pain.

The play was on a fourth down in the third quarter. Eli Manning found Cruz in the back of the right end zone for what looked to be a soon-to-be touchdown reception. However, as Cruz started to go up for the pass, his knee appeared to buckle and Cruz was unable to catch it.

He then needed assistance onto a cart before heading to the locker room. Up to Cruz's injury, he'd had an incredibly tough game, as the rest of the Giants' offense. Cruz had two catches for 16 yards. With Cruz out, receiver Preston Parker replaced him.

Cruz will finish 2014 with 23 catches for 337 yards and one touchdown.
