The 31-year-old is in his 10th National Football League season and fourth with the Giants, having also played for the Denver Broncos (2013), Philadelphia Eagles (2011-12) and Arizona Cardinals (2008-2010).

Suspended Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie reported to the team's facility on Thursday morning, according to a person familiar with the situation.

McAdoo didn't disclose the length of Rodgers-Cromartie's suspension on Wednesday.

Rodgers-Cromartie, who had started three games, reported to the Giants' headquarters Wednesday morning and then left. The second-year coach had met with Rodgers-Cromartie on Tuesday and told him that he would not be active for this Sunday's game in Denver because of something the 31-year-old said or did during Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

As a practical matter, the indefinite suspension has an end date as the CBA only allows teams to suspend players for four games.

"DRC came in yesterday".

John Elway signed Rodgers-Cromartie to a modest two-year, $10 million deal with the Broncos back in 2013, but he only played with the team one season and signed a big money deal with the Giants. "He came in today, made a decision to leave. we will suspend him".

When reached after news of his suspension went public Wednesday, Rodgers-Cromartie reportedly told ESPN that he "handled it the wrong way, but to sit me a game had me hot, so I left".

The Giants suspended the corner on Wednesday for walking out of team activities. I was suspended way before I left.

Rodgers-Cromartie has 26 tackles and a half-sack this season.

"I think the leaders on this team, they're not going to let anything like that happen", Apple said.
