Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie suspended by Giants

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie suspended by Giants

In what has been a insane Wednesday, the New York Giants announced that they suspended veteran cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie but there's a possibility he could return Thursday. The cornerback came to the facility Wednesday and left the team without practicing.

Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie looks on from the field against the Los Angeles Chargers at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017. McAdoo said the Giants therefore would be suspending Rodgers-Cromartie but didn't provide further information.

Rodgers-Cromartie has started four of the Giants' five games this year, all losses. Rodgers-Cromartie told Anderson he'll come back to the team "tomorrow". "He came in today, chose to leave. we will suspend him".

Shepard is expected to miss Sunday's game against the Broncos and, although the Giants are listing him as day-to-day, he's likely to also be unavailable for when they return home for the October 22 game against Seattle at MetLife Stadium.

They are 0-5 after making the playoffs a year ago, and the suspension gives the impression that McAdoo is losing his team in just his second year as head coach.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, this rift occurred as a result of some outburst from DRC on the sidelines during Sunday's loss to the Chargers. So he left and now the Giants are suspending him. Rodgers-Cromartie's base salary this season is $6.98 million, meaning his suspension could potentially cost him more than $436,000 per game. As Jenkins and Apple established themselves as the top two corners, Rodgers-Cromartie was relegated to a slot role in sub packages.
