Rodgers-Cromartie, the veteran Giants cornerback, reported to the team facilities on Thursday and was told he was suspended indefinitely, according to numerous reports. Coach Ben McAdoo said Wednesday that Rodgers-Cromartie would be suspended, apparently over an argument last Sunday. Giants safety Landon Collins called it an “altercation.” Rodgers-Cromartie left the Giants facility on Wednesday.
Rodgers-Cromartie loses $410,588 for every game he’s suspended according to ESPN’s Jordan Raanan. Neither Rodgers-Cromartie nor McAdoo was immediately available for comment. Players can be suspended a maximum of four weeks under the collective bargaining agreement.

The Giants suspended Rodger-Cromartie on Wednesday for leaving the team facility before practice. McAdoo had told him on Tuesday night that he would be inactive for Sunday night’s game in Denver because he left the bench in the second half of a loss to the Chargers and went to the locker room.
The Pro Bowl cornerback left a recovery session Friday and threw his helmet in disgust when he was taken off the field late in Sunday’s loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, sources told ESPN. He was in apparent pain and hobbling around the field at that time and went into the locker room with the intent to leave the stadium. He later returned to the field.
He has one more season remaining on a five-year, $35 million deal signed in 2014. To replace Rodgers-Cromartie, the Giants signed cornerback Donte Deayon off their practice squad.
