The head coach still doesn’t have much to say.
EAST RUTHERFORD — Ben McAdoo says he did not have any sort of altercation with suspended cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie during the Giants’ loss to the Chargers last Sunday, but that’s about all the coach will say.

The coach typically does not speak to reporters on Thursday, and instead answers submitted questions which are asked by a team employee and then transcribed and disseminated by the public relations staff. Despite repeated requests for McAdoo to break from routine and have a press briefing Thursday, he would not.
Instead, he offered 24 words in response to the five questions posed for him.
Rodgers-Cromartie was suspended for a “violation of team rules,” McAdoo replied when asked why he was suspended. McAdoo offered no apparent answer when asked why the suspension has been deemed indefinite, rather than being set for a specific number of weeks or games.
When asked if he had an “altercation” with Rodgers-Cromartie on Sunday, verbal or otherwise, McAdoo said, “no, not at all.” That conflicts with what Rodgers-Cromartie told ESPN and safety Landon Collins told reporters in the locker room Wednesday.
McAdoo met with Rodgers-Cromartie on Thursday at the team facility to inform him he was suspended indefinitely. McAdoo had previously announced his suspension Wednesday after Rodgers-Cromartie walked out of the team facility, but offered no details to reporters.

“It was a private conversation that will remain private,” McAdoo said.
The final question McAdoo was asked: Why did Rodgers-Cromartie’s actions Sunday warrant being benched – he walked out due to anger over the fact he was to be inactive for the Denver game due to disciplinary reasons – when McAdoo has not benched other players …read more
