UPDATE: Tuesday OCT. 17 12:00 P.M.
Well that was quick. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie’s “indefinite” suspension has ended after one game and he’ll report back to the Giants facility today. Big Blue waived Michael Hunter—who was injured against the Broncos— to make room for the veteran corner back.
Another day, another L for the New York Giants.
As if starting the season 0-5, losing four wideouts to leg injuries, and Odell Beckham Jr.’s broken ankle weren’t enough, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has been suspended indefinitely by head coach Ben McAdoo.
The veteran cornerback got into an argument with McAdoo on the sidelines during last Sunday’s 27-22 loss to the Chargers. Then DRC left the bench area during the second half of the game and went back to the locker room, which is a violation of a team rule. He also left the practice facility Wednesday because he wasn’t happy with the decisions the coach was making.
When he arrived back on the grounds Thursday morning, McAdoo greeted Cromartie with a suspension.
The NFL’s collective bargaining agreement states that a team can suspended a player for a maximum of four weeks before a team has to release or reinstate him. But the way Big Blue’s season is going, they’re gonna need all the talent they can get on the field to salvage what’s left of the year.
In the meantime, the Giants signed cornerback Donte Deayon off the practice squad to take his place.
