Cruz and JPP on the practice field for Giants

The Giants weren’t at full strength Monday morning, but they did have some key parts back on the practice field.

According to Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News, both wide receiver Victor Cruz and defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul were on hand for practice, as the Giants began preparations for the opener against the Cowboys.

Center David Baas (knee) did a few positional drills, but was hanging out near the players on on stationary bikes while reporters were watching.

While they’d miss Baas, getting Cruz back on the field would be a huge boost for an offense that had its issues during the preseason.
