New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz says that he is confident of playing against the Dallas Cowboys later today.

Victor Cruz has said that he is "confident" that he will play in the New York Giants' opening game of the 2013 NFL season later today.

The wide receiver still needs to receive clearance from the team's medical staff, having picked up a heel injury during the pre-season.

The 26-year-old told the team's official website: "I'll probably get just a couple routes on it [today], nothing too crazy. But I'm confident. I feel good, I feel like I'm in shape, I feel like the heel is much better. I'm anxious to go out there and see what I can do on game day.

"I've been practising full-go. I've been limited in certain areas, but I've been pretty much practising in getting my footing down and cutting and things like that and everything feels pretty normal.

"I just want the doctors to give one last look at it and tell me what they think and then we'll go from there."

The Giants play the Dallas Cowboys this evening.
