In what has been a insane Wednesday, the New York Giants announced that they suspended veteran cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie but there's a possibility he could return Thursday. That is, until today, when the team made a decision to suspended cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
Rodgers-Cromartie did exit Sunday's 27-22 loss to the Chargers due to what was believed to be a left leg injury, but he was excluded from the injury report.
According to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, Rodgers-Cromartie had a conversation with McAdoo on Tuesday and again on Wednesday, when he ultimately chose to leave practice shortly after he got there. "And he came in today, chose to leave. We will suspend him".
Oh, and you thought it couldn't get worse for the 0-5 New York Giants.
Rodgers-Cromartie has appeared in all five games for the Giants this season with four starts.
Cromartie, the Cardinals' first-round pick in the 2008 National Football League draft, spent three seasons in Arizona before stints with the Eagles, Broncos and Giants. So he left and now the Giants are suspending him. He and Rodgers-Cromartie are two of the most valuable players on the team. Apple vented to reporters after the loss to the Chargers about "the whole culture" of the Giants.
Things are going well with the Giants.
In an interesting turn, the Giants had previously demoted starting cornerback Eli Apple for Rodgers-Cromartie following last week's game. If they galvanize ahead of Sunday night's game in Denver and actually manage to be competitive, it will be impressive.
