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. Feb 9 - 12:03 PM

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. Eli Apple filled in after Rodgers-Cromartie got hurt last week but he's also dealing with an injury. New York's secondary is in rough shape right now.

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.

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.
Sun, Jul 31, 2016 09:43:00 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 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.
Thu, Sep 24, 2015 07:10:00 PM

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.
