Ben McAdoo said he didn’t want to talk about playing time for Thursday’s preseason finale against the Patriots, but it sounds as if he’d like Victor Cruz to play.

“It was good to see him out there,” McAdoo said. “He looked confident, looked comfortable, looked like he was excited, and I would like to get him more touches.”

Cruz had just one catch for 4 yards in the game Saturday, his first in nearly two full years. While he said he would like to play against the Patriots, Cruz declared himself prepared for the regular-season opener after Saturday’s performance.

“I think I can go out there September 11 and be OK,” he said.
