EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz expects to play in the regular-season opener against the Dallas Cowboys.

A day after removing the protective boot from his injured left foot, Cruz was upbeat about being ready for the Sept. 8 game. He said the only time his injured heel hurts is when he gets out of bed in the morning.

The Giants' leading receiver the past two seasons, Cruz was injured Aug. 18 against the Colts when his foot was stepped on by a defender. The Paterson, N.J., native continues to get treatment, including an exercise where he has to pick up marbles with his feet.

Cruz missed the third preseason game, vs. the Jets, and will also skip Thursday's exhibition finale at New England. He hopes to practice Monday.

    A law enforcement official says he sent a video of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancée to an NFL executive five months ago, while league executives have insisted they didn't see the violent images until this week. The person played The Associated Press a 12-second voicemail from an NFL office number on April 9 confirming the video arrived. A female voice expresses thanks and says: "You're right. It's terrible."
