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.

Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie suffered a groin injury Week 3 against the Redskins.

He was joined on the sidelines by rookie Eli Apple, who was forced out by a hamstring injury. With S Darian Thompson (foot) out indefinitely, the Giants are getting thin in the secondary.

Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie said his early-career struggles in the slot were due to a lack of preparation.

"In Philly, it was just thrown out there," he said. "Whole time in camp, playing outside and then in season comes, you're just thrown in nickel." The Giants are giving DRC plenty of reps at the position during camp, which should allow him to be successful once the snaps start to matter. Rodgers-Cromartie shifting inside should allow first-round pick Eli Apple to get on the field.

The Giants are giving Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie snaps at slot corner.

The Giants made the odd decision to draft a third boundary corner at No. 10 overall, selecting Eli Apple out of Ohio State. One of DRC, Apple, and Janoris Jenkins will have to learn to play slot corner, and so far it's been Rodgers-Cromartie getting the first look. DRC struggled mightily at slot corner earlier in his career with the Eagles. He may emerge as someone to attack in DFS.
Jul 31 - 9:43 PM

Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie missed the first day of OTAs while attending to a personal matter.

Considering the Giants paid big money to Janoris Jenkins and spent a first-round pick on Eli Apple, it would be understandable if Rodgers-Cromartie was concerned about his role in the organization, but this incident does not seem to be related to any dispute. Rodgers-Cromartie is expected back on Tuesday, and he should open the season opposite Jenkins in the starting lineup.

Giants LCB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (concussion) is practicing fully this week.

DRC missed Week 3 with his concussion. The Giants will have back their top corner for Sunday's matchup with piping-hot Bills quarterback TyGod Taylor.

Giants LCB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (concussion) is inactive for Week 3.

It's a boost for Pierre Garcon. Jayron Hosley is starting in DRC's absence. He should be ready to return for Week 4.

Giants LCB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie suffered a concussion in New York's Week 2 game against the Falcons, and is done for the day.

Rodgers-Cromartie was injured trying to tackle Tevin Coleman. DRC had already missed roughly a quarter with a stinger. Jayron Hosley is now in the game opposite Prince Amukamara. DRC is likely to miss Week 3, as the Giants are playing in the Thursday night game.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie left Sunday's Week 16 game at St. Louis with a stinger, but later returned.

Midway through the third quarter, Rodgers-Cromartie went down after tackling Kenny Britt. He's fought shoulder, ankle and hamstring injuries this season.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle) was limited in practice Saturday and is questionable for Week 9.

DRC only played 15 snaps against the Cowboys Week 7, and is still not healthy following the Giants' Week 8 bye. The Giants are already very thin at corner.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin isn't sure whether Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle, hamstring) will play Monday night against the Colts.

Coughlin "simply laughed" when asked if he could game plan with the notion in mind that DRC will play. DRC only played 15 snaps in the Giants' Week 7 game against the Cowboys, and didn't get back to 100 percent after the Week 8 bye. If Rodgers-Cromartie can't go against Indianapolis, T.Y. Hilton and to a lesser extent Donte Moncrief's matchups would get fantasy boosts.

Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle/hamstring) is active for Sunday's Week 7 game against the Cowboys.

It's big news for the Giants as they try to hold down Dez Bryant. Meanwhile, they have decided not to activate Corey Washington despite Victor Cruz's season-ending knee injury. The rest of the Giants' inactives: RB Rashad Jennings, OL Adam Snyder, DE Kerry Wynn, T James Brewer, OL Brandon Mosley and DT Jay Bromley.
Sun, Oct 19, 2014 03:03:00 PM

Giants LCB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle/hamstring/back, questionable) traveled with the team to Dallas.

Despite doing next to nothing in practice this week, Rodgers-Cromartie traveling with the team leaves open the possibility he plays against the Cowboys. Even if he goes, coach Tom Coughlin has left open the possibility he plays a limited role. Zack Bowman is in line to start if DRC misses the game.
Sat, Oct 18, 2014 12:57:00 PM

Giants LCB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle/hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 7.

After doing next to nothing in practice all week, coach Tom Coughlin indicated DRC could be available for a limited role in Sunday's meeting with the Cowboys. It's also quite possible Rodgers-Cromartie won't play at all, which would likely force Zack Bowman or Jayron Hosley to start opposite Prince Amukamara.
