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. Initial tests on Baas indicated he suffered a sprained MCL and will miss 3-6 weeks, sources told FOX Sports Mike Garafolo.

Colts tight end Coby Fleener sprained a knee late in the first half. The Colts did not say which knee, but he appeared to be favoring his right leg. The spain was considered mild, but the second-year pro was held out for the second half.

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.
