Gi­ants sus­pend cor­ner­back Do­minique Rodgers-Cro­mar­tie

The Garden Island - - Morning Briefing -

EAST RUTHER­FORD, N.J. — The New York Gi­ants sus­pended vet­eran Dom­inque Rodgers-Cro­mar­tie af­ter the cor­ner­back left the team’s fa­cil­i­ties be­fore prac­tice on Wed­nes­day.

Coach Ben McA­doo an­nounced the in­def­i­nite sus­pen­sion af­ter prac­tice.

The sec­ond-year coach had met with Rodgers-Cro­mar­tie on Tues­day and told him that he would not be active for this Sun­day’s game in Den­ver be­cause of some­thing the 31-year-old ei­ther said or did dur­ing Sun­day’s loss to the Los An­ge­les Charg­ers.

Rodgers-Cro­mar­tie had left the bench and gone to the locker room dur­ing the sec­ond half, but he later re­turned. It is not known if the two ex­changed words dur­ing the game. There was no ap­par­ent phys­i­cal al­ter­ca­tion.

McA­doo told the 10-year vet­eran who joined the Gi­ants in 2014 that he still ex­pected him to prac­tice this week and pre­pare for the game even though he was not go­ing to play.

Rodgers-Cro­mar­tie, who had started three games, re­ported to the Gi­ants head­quar­ters Wed­nes­day morn­ing and then left. He was not avail­able for com­ment. Roo­sevelt Barnes, his agent, did not re­turn a tele­phone call from The As­so­ci­ated Press.
