Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie played just 16-of-76 snaps Week 7 against the Seahawks.
Coming back from a one-game suspension, Rodgers-Cromartie said he expected to be limited. "I can’t complain or get mad about when I’m in or out," the corner said. "I know it’s a long football season and I know one thing about corners, we always get hurt, so I know I’m gonna get a chance to get back in there." It would make sense for the Giants to have Rodgers-Cromartie play a bigger role after the bye week. Oct 23 - 9:58 AM

Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie's suspension has been lifted.

So the "indefinite" ban ended up lasting just one game. Suspended after walking out of the facility, Rodgers-Cromartie and coach Ben McAddo apparently smoothed things over in a meeting last week. This will hopefully be the last we hear of the incident.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, suspended Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is expected to be reinstated for Week 7.

DRC was suspended "indefinitely" after storming out of the team facility on Wednesday, but it looks like he'll only miss one game. Rodgers-Cromartie's frustration stems from being pulled from last week's game against the Chargers, though after meeting with head coach Ben McAdoo to clear the air, it seems the two sides have come to an understanding. The veteran corner is currently attending homecoming weekend at his alma mater Tennessee State, but should be back at the Giants' facility for the start of practice next week.

Giants announced CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is suspended indefinitely.

After walking out of the facility on Wednesday, Rodgers-Cromartie returned Thursday morning to meet with coach Ben McAdoo, but the suspension will stand. The Giants are only allowed to suspend DRC for a maximum of four games, and it seems unlikely the ban lasts even that long. That said, he will not be available for the game against the Broncos this week. CB Donte Deayon was promoted off the practice squad in a corresponding move.

According to ESPN's Dan Graziano, Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was suspended after walking out of a team meeting on Wednesday.

DRC's troubles actually began on Friday when he walked out on the team's "recovery day." Frustrations mounted Sunday against the Chargers when Rodgers-Cromartie angrily slammed his helmet down and left the field before the game was over. Coach Ben McAdoo held a meeting with Rodgers-Cromartie on Tuesday, telling him that he would be allowed to practice but would not be active for Week 6 against the Broncos and would also be fined for skipping the mandatory recovery day. DRC responded by walking out of Wednesday's meeting and cleaning out his locker, which prompted the suspension. Despite his recent outbursts, the Giants have no plans to trade or release Rodgers-Cromartie.

Giants suspended CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for conduct detrimental to the team.

According to those involved, Rodgers-Cromartie came into the facility Wednesday and got into a heated altercation with coach Ben McAdoo. It reportedly had much to do with his role on defense. DRC has been playing inside, covering the slot, but wants to play outside after he briefly was given the chance to in Week 5 against the Chargers at the expense of Eli Apple. The coaching staff apparently wants to go back to Apple, and DRC decided to leave the team. It's a sinking ship for the G-Men. Look for Ross Cockrell to pick up the available snaps.
Oct 11 - 2:11 PM

ESPN Giants reporter Jordan Raanan believes CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie "played his way" onto the 2017 roster.

There was speculation the Giants might move on from Rodgers-Cromartie due to his $8.5 million cap charge, but he was outstanding in 2016 even while playing a decent share of his snaps in the slot, where he struggled previously in his career. Still, Janoris Jenkins and Eli Apple are the future on the outside, and DRC is not an ideal option inside. It would not be surprising if DRC got cut.

Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (groin) is questionable for Monday night against the Vikings.

Rodgers-Cromartie is at best a game-time decision, and the Giants will be without fellow CB Eli Apple (hamstring, doubtful) as well as safeties Nat Berhe (concussion, out) and Darian Thompson (foot, out). Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph should find some success Monday night.

Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie said there's no tear in his injured groin.

Rodgers-Cromartie suffered the injury in Sunday's loss to Washington. He's already resumed running and is hoping to suit up for Monday night's game in Minnesota.

The New York Post expects Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (groin) to miss some time.

Rodgers-Cromartie was reportedly moving gingerly around the locker room after exiting the Week 3 loss to the Redskins. With Eli Apple (hamstring) and Darian Thompson (foot) also likely to sit out this week, the Giants are getting thin in the secondary.
