New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz spent Sunday night at Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia after suffering a scary knee injury during the Philadelphia Eagles-New York Giants game. Cruz tore the patella tendon in his right knee as he was jumping to make a catch. Cruz fell to the ground without the ball in his hands and remained down for several minutes before having to be carted off. The Philadelphia crowd gave Cruz cheers of support as he left the field.
Cruz received some further support later that night. It turns out that Eagles head coach Chip Kelly visited Cruz during his stay at the Philadelphia hospital.

Great gesture by Kelly.
Actions like this just makes that cowardly, disingenuous New York Daily News cover photo trying to portray Philadelphia as a "classless" city make even more ridiculous.
Speaking of that story, check out this piece by Ed Kracz. Kracz interviewed the Eagles flag-runner (Charlie) who was inaccurately portrayed on that cover. It turns out that the New York Daily News smeared a man who spent 3 days searching the rubble for survivors on 9/11. Now that's classy, right?
