EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Victor Cruz returned to practice and had New York Giants teammates seeing red.
Cruz was getting grief for wearing a red jersey with the No. 8.
The quarterbacks normally wear the red jerseys in practice. It’s the universal sign telling teammates not to lay a finger on them.
Cruz got his red jersey because coach Tom Coughlin wanted to make sure his No. 1 receiver didn’t get hit in practice Thursday and have a setback for Sunday’s game against Oakland. The teasing comments came mostly from the defense.
The 2012 Pro Bowler has caught 47 passes for 677 yards and four touchdowns in eight games this season.
