Share

Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was missing from practice on Wednesday, but it wasn't because of an injury.

"DRC came in (Tuesday), we had a conversation that was personal upstairs and he came in (Wednesday) and made a decision to leave", McAdoo said during a Wednesday press conference.

Giants safety Landon Collins said he believed the issue stems from what he called an "altercation" between McAdoo and Rodgers-Cromartie?on Sunday.?

"He came in today, chose to leave", McAdoo said. "We will suspend him", McAdoo said Wednesday.

In his career, DRC has 30 interceptions, 144 passes defended, six touchdowns, 417 tackles and 2 1/2 sacks. McAdoo said the Giants therefore would be suspending Rodgers-Cromartie but didn't provide further information.

The New York Giants are an absolute mess right now.

Rodgers-Cromartie signed a five-year, $35 million deal with the Giants before the 2014 season.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, this rift occurred as a result of some outburst from DRC on the sidelines during Sunday's loss to the Chargers.

McAdoo provided no other details about why Rodgers-Cromartie opted to go home but Art Stapleton of The Record (N.J.) reports that he was upset with his current usage as a slot corner. It wouldn't be a surprise given how things are going for the Giants this season. It is unknown how long Rodger-Cromartie has been suspended for, but the Giants are now down another impact player as they prepare to face a tough Denver Broncos team on Sunday night.
