The New York Giants have suspended cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. There has been a lot of conflicting information today. Here is what we know about the suspension so far.

Rodgers-Cromartie stormed off the field and to the locker room during Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers. This was taken by coaches and teammates that he was going to leave the stadium. Rodgers-Cromartie was not in the locker room when it was opened to reporters.

This incident led to Rodgers-Cromartie and Head Coach Ben McAdoo having a personal meeting on Tuesday. Rodgers-Cromartie did not participate in practice on Wednesday. McAdoo said that Rodgers-Cromartie had left that day and would be suspended.

Rodgers-Cromartie gave a bit of a different story. He told ESPN’s Josina Anderson that he and McAdoo got into an altercation about playing time. Rodgers-Cromartie acknowledges that he had handled the situation the wrong way.

When asked about the suspension, he said “to sit me a game had me hot, so I left. I was suspended way before I left. I left bc I felt what he said was BS.”

It is unknown how long the suspension will last. The Giants can suspend Rodgers-Cromartie up to 4 games for violating the team’s conduct policy.

This story is just one example of how out of hand the Giants locker room is getting. Cornerback Jaronis Jenkins left Sunday’s game in the same manner of Rodgers-Cromartie and will be disciplined by the team. Miscommunication and a lack of responsibility have led to the Giants giving up  10 passing touchdowns so far this season. They gave up 15 last season.

The future for the Giants looks grim. They have started the season 0-5 and will be without star receiver Odell Beckham Jr for the rest of the season. The Giants will try to turn around their season against the Denver Broncos.
