"DRC was in and out", McAdoo said after the loss to the Chargers.

Jordan Canaan of ESPN reported that Giants safety Landon Collins told reporters that Rodgers-Cromartie and McAdoo got into an "altercation" during Sunday's loss to the Chargers.

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

If the Giants suspend Rodgers-Cromartie for the full four weeks allowed, they would either have to release him or reinstate him to the roster for their November 12 game at the 49ers. What those conversations were McAdoo did not expand upon. Rodgers-Cromartie was to participate in practice this week as normal but would be one of the seven game-day inactives Sunday in Denver. So he left and now the Giants are suspending him.

The Giants (0-5) are dealing with the fallout of not only a lost season that began with so much promise, but the emotional blows of season-ending surgeries this week for Odell Beckham Jr. If the Giants cut him, he would carry $2 million in dead cap space for 2018, a savings of $6.5 million.
