The Giants suspended the veteran cornerback on Wednesday.
EAST RUTHERFORD — Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has been suspended indefinitely after a Thursday morning meeting with head coach Ben McAdoo.
The announcement comes a day after McAdoo announced the veteran was suspended. Rodgers-Cromartie can be suspended up to four weeks per the terms of the collective bargaining agreement between the NFL and NFLPA.
Rodgers-Cromartie reported to the team facility Thursday and was in the locker room, according to a source. He then met with McAdoo.
McAdoo announced Rodgers-Cromartie was suspended after he left the facility on Wednesday before practice.
“DRC came in yesterday. We had a conversation that was personal upstairs and he came in today,” McAdoo said. “Decided to leave. We will suspend him. … We had a conversation yesterday. He came into the building this morning. Decided to leave and we will put him on suspension.”
Rodgers-Cromartie was not listed as suspended on the Wednesday league transaction notice. Rodgers-Cromartie left because was upset after learning Tuesday he would be inactive for Sunday’s game against the Broncos.
Recapping Giants’ 2017 crazy dysfunction
Rodgers-Cromartie was set to be disciplined for his actions during the second half of last Sunday’s 27-22 loss to the Chargers. The veteran left the bench area briefly in second half and, according to Rodgers-Cromartie’s comments to an ESPN reporter, argued with McAdoo on the sideline.
ESPN reported the Giants plan to welcome Rodgers-Cromartie back “with a clean slate once he has served his punishment,” and the suspension could end up being for multiple games.
