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

DRC, Landon Collins and Sterling Shepard absent from Giants practice

Somehow things are getting worse: Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie got suspended by the team Wednesday for what amounts to going AWOL.

McAdoo didn't delve into what led to the conversation or give any idea about when Rodgers-Cromartie might be back with the team, but the cornerback touched on both in a conversation with Josina Anderson of ESPN following the coach's announcement. Rodgers-Cromartie felt he was being a "good soldier" by taking the slot cornerback role, according to Rapoport, and disagreement apparently dragged into Tuesday's conversation with McAdoo. "We will suspend him", McAdoo said. Collins says that Rodgers-Cromartie didn't leave the team but was suspended after he had a disagreement with McAdoo, according to Leonard. "He came in today and made a decision to leave".

So far this season, Cromartie, a two-time Pro Bowler who has been with the team since 2014, has 26 tackles, 0.5 sacks and no interceptions.

The 31-year-old is in his 10th National Football League season and fourth with the Giants, having also played for the Denver Broncos (2013), Philadelphia Eagles (2011-12) and Arizona Cardinals (2008-2010). Apple vented to reporters after the loss to the Chargers about "the whole culture" of the Giants. So he left and now the Giants are suspending him.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the suspension stemmed from a "heated" argument between Rodgers-Cromartie and McAdoo that began when the cornerback was pulled from Sunday's 27-22 loss against the Los Angeles Chargers.
