“I wish I could go back and get them, but things happen,” Cruz said. “When I was on the flight to get my surgery, a fan came up to me and said: `Don’t worry about those two yards, you still got 1,000 in my book.’ That sealed the deal for me. I was like, I knew I didn’t need them.”

NOTES: G Brandon Mosley (hand), DE Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) and TE Adrien Robinson (knee) were declared out for Sunday’s game. …Mosley was having surgery Friday on the hand he broke last weekend. Pierre-Paul missed the final five games. RBs Andre Brown and Peyton Hillis are probable after suffering concussions in the last two weeks.
