Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie arrived at the Giants practice facility Thursday morning and met with head coach Ben McAdoo.
McAdoo informed Rodgers-Cromartie he is suspended indefinitely.
Where this goes from here is anybodys guess.
McAdoo announced the suspension a day earlier, upset with how the veteran cornerback acted and reacted in the second half of last Sundays 27-22 loss to the Chargers, dropping the Giants to 0-5. McAdoo met with DRC on Tuesday and told him he was going to benched for this Sundays game against the Broncos in Denver, one of the seven inactive players. On Wednesday, Rodgers-Cromartie reported for work, attended a morning meeting and then left the building. It was after that departure that McAdoo decided the benching would grow into a suspension.
Rodgers-Cromartie left the bench area and went into the locker room during the second half of the loss to the Chargers, according to someone with knowledge of what transpired. That is a violation of team rules.
It appears Rodgers-Cromartie was agitated by what was taking place in the game. He started at an outside cornerback spot, as Eli Apple was benched for the first three defensive series. Once Apple was put in the game, Rodgers-Cromartie moved inside to his usual but not his preferred slot position. In the fourth quarter, he got stepped on and left with an apparent Achilles issue, tried to return but lasted only one play.
As he came to the sideline he slammed his helmet down in disgust. He ended up playing 40 of the 78 defensive snaps.
