Practice report: Victor Cruz not in red
By Matt Ehalt
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Giants receiver Victor Cruz (neck) practiced Friday without a red non-contact jersey during the portion of practice open to the media, a great sign for his availability for Sunday's game against Oakland. Cruz had worn the red jersey on Thursday for a limited practice, and didn't work out on Wednesday.
Cornerback Trumaine McBride (groin), who missed Thursday, was working out and should be set for Sunday. Corner Corey Webster (groin) did not practice and it appears he won't play Sunday. McBride has replaced Webster as the starter.
Running back Brandon Jacobs (hamstring/knee) was not working out and his status for Sunday could be in doubt. He was limited the previous two days.
Jayron Hosley (hamstring), Terrell Thomas (knee) and Adrien Robinson (foot) were practicing during the open portion.
