• Victor Cruz: Teammates have to buck up David Wilson

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Sep 11, 2013
    Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz told WFAN this morning that they had to rally around Wilson to help keep him out of the doghouse. “We don’t want to mentally get down,” Cruz said. Foote, the ‘buck' linebacker in the Steelers' 3-4 defense, is responsible for lining up on the strong side of the opponent's formation and being the No. 1 run-stopper. “I have always emphasized to myself to know my role and wait my turn,” said Wilson, who spent time with San Diego and Carolina before signing with the Steelers. One of the big questions surrounding the Steelers is how to replace a linebacker the caliber of Larry Foote, who was lost for the season after suffering a ruptured right biceps during Sunday's 16-9 loss to Tennessee.
