UMaine football notebook: Wright gets advice from ex-NFL star
Former Giants and UMass receiver Victor Cruz offers words of wisdom for injured Maine receiver Micah Wright.

...Cruz took some time to speak to Wright, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in last week’s 31-17 loss to Delaware. Wright said he will undergo surgery Wednesday to repair a torn ACL and “other things.”

“It’s tough,” said Wright, a junior wide receiver and punt returner. “But it happens.”

Coen asked Cruz to speak to Wright because Cruz twice had to come back from season-ending injuries in his NFL career.

“I wanted (Cruz) to motivate Micah and to talk about moving forward,” said Coen, who considers Cruz one of his best friends. “I wanted him to talk about what Micah was going to have to do.”

Cruz, who was celebrating his 31st birthday, told Wright to take the rehab time to learn about himself and his body.
