Giants suspend Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie after he shows up, then leaves

Giants safety Landon Collins told reporters, though, that Rodgers-Cromartie and McAdoo had some sort of incident on the sidelines during last week's loss to the Chargers and that he isn't buying the explanation that DRC left the team of his own volition.

The Giants will suspend Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie after the defensive back left the team facility Wednesday.

Head coach Ben McAdoo made the announcement about the 31-year-old Rodgers-Cromartie, who started four of the winless Giants' five games this season. "We will suspend him", McAdoo said.

The veteran cornerback did tell Anderson that he plans to return to the team Thursday but he will likely continue to practice under the suspension label and be ruled out against the Broncos.

"DRC came in yesterday, we had a conversation that was personal upstairs", McAdoo said. McAdoo refused to say how long the suspension will be for, if it will be a paid or unpaid suspension or offer any specifics on what led to the decision. Rodgers-Cromartie was to participate in practice this week as normal but would be one of the seven game-day inactives Sunday in Denver. As Jenkins and Apple established themselves as the top two corners, Rodgers-Cromartie was relegated to a slot role in sub packages.

The Giants (0-5) are dealing with the fallout of not only a lost season that began with so much promise, but the emotional blows of season-ending surgeries this week for Odell Beckham Jr.

There was also an altercation during the Giants' loss to the Chargers.
