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.
Sep 24 - 7:10 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.
Sep 20 - 2:27 PM

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.

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.

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.
Fri, Oct 17, 2014 03:05:00 PM

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle, hamstring) is not practicing again Thursday.

DRC is looking unlikely for Sunday's game against the Cowboys and slot corner Trumaine McBride (thumb) is already out. Prince Amukamura may end up shadowing Dez Bryant Sunday.
Thu, Oct 16, 2014 12:42:00 PM

Giants LCB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie missed Wednesday's practice with hamstring and ankle injuries.

DRC exited Sunday night's loss to Philadelphia with a back injury. Now battling myriad physical ailments, Rodgers-Cromartie may or may not play against the Cowboys, and if he does seems highly unlikely to be 100 percent. Dez Bryant is looking at a plus Week 7 matchup. The Giants are also without slot corner Trumaine McBride, who was placed on injured reserve this week.
Thu, Oct 16, 2014 12:02:00 AM

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie left Sunday night's Week 6 game against the Eagles with a back injury.

He's done for the night. It's another setback after Rodgers-Cromartie was brought into the game with hip and ankle injuries. Zack Bowman has replaced him in the lineup.
Sun, Oct 12, 2014 10:18:00 PM

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is dealing with ankle and hip injuries, but tentatively expects to suit up for Week 6.

DRC is undergoing tests on Monday afternoon. The Giants can ill afford for Rodgers-Cromartie to miss Sunday evening's game with the high-powered Eagles.
Mon, Oct 6, 2014 03:08:00 PM

The Giants plan to have new CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie shadow No. 1 receivers.

DRC won't be playing "sides" in the Big Apple. "Are you the best receiver (on your) team?," coach Tom Coughlin asked rhetorically. "(DRC's) following you then. ... He's physical enough. When you watch him closely, he doesn't shy away." The G-Men paid DRC No. 1 cornerback money, and plan to utilize him like one. They just have to hope the DRC of 2013, and not 2011-12, shows up this season.

The New York Daily News reports coach Rex Ryan is "pissed" the Jets couldn't land Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie or another top cornerback in free agency after releasing Antonio Cromartie.

It hints at a potential rift between the Jets' longtime coach and second-year GM John Idzik. Idzik may have to try and lure 30-year-old Cromartie back to New York after striking out on DRC, Walter Thurmond III, Vontae Davis, and Alterraun Verner. There aren't any other desirable starting corners left in free agency that fit Ryan's press-man scheme. Idzik could also look to the trade market. Two names that might available are Dallas' Morris Claiborne and Houston's Johnathan Joseph.
