EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - New York wide receiver Victor Cruz left the Giants' game against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night because of a bruised foot.

The Giants said X-rays of the foot were negative and Cruz would not play the rest of the game.

Cruz, who signed a multiyear, $43 million contract before the start of training camp, went to the locker room early in the first quarter. The team did not say which one and it was not clear when he was hurt although he was knocked to the turf on a long pass on the third play from scrimmage. Pass interference was called on the play.

Giants starting center David Baas also was knocked out of the game with a sprained knee. The team did not disclose which knee was injured.

After skipping the offseason program, Cruz signed a five-year contract extension that runs through the 2018 season. He was a restricted free agent with three years in the NFL, and he signed a one-year, $2.879 million tender with the Giants.

The 26-year-old from Paterson, N.J., was an undrafted free agent out of Massachusetts in 2010, but he's become one of the most productive receivers in the NFL. Over the last two seasons, he has 168 receptions for 1,628 yards and 19 touchdowns.
