Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers Cromartie is suspended

Somehow things are getting worse: Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie got suspended by the team Wednesday for what amounts to going AWOL.

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 made a decision to leave practice shortly after he got there.

McAdoo did not provide any more information to reporters. Head coach Ben McAdoo said that he and Rodgers-Cromartie had spoken on Tuesday and that the cornerback left the team's facility on Wednesday morning.

Details at this time are scarce, but these reports seem to make sense. Players are often willing to make sacrifices if they are resulting in wins for the team, but when an National Football League team has yet to win a game by mid-October, frustration with a particular role can easily boil over into conflict. Rodgers-Cromartie wanted to start on the outside, not in the slot. He is in his fourth season with the team and his 10th in the NFL. Apparently Rodgers-Cromartie wasn't interested in being disciplined. "We will suspend him", McAdoo said Wednesday.

This news comes after the Giants had already demoted Eli Apple at the cornerback position, who voiced his opinions about being a "scapegoat" for the Giants' woes after said demotion.

Rodgers-Cromartie, a veteran, has been with the Giants since 2014 and is part of a team that is now 0-5, its season all but over.
