Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has been suspended by the Giants after showing up to practice Wednesday and leaving shortly thereafter, Ben McAdoo said.

"DRC came in (Tuesday), we had a conversation that was personal upstairs and he came in (Wednesday) and chose to leave", McAdoo said during a Wednesday press conference. He added that he left because what McAdoo said "was BS".

"DRC came in yesterday, we had a conversation that was personal upstairs", McAdoo said.

The Giants have a bye after that, so Shepard would conceivably get three weeks to treat his left ankle injury before returning to action. So the team suspended him. Rodgers-Cromartie was to participate in practice this week as normal but would be one of the seven game-day inactives Sunday in Denver. Rodgers-Cromartie also admitted to Anderson that he and McAdoo had a disagreement on Sunday and he conceded that he "handled it the wrong way". With the addition of free agent Janoris Jenkins and first-round pick Eli Apple, however, his role has diminished slightly in recent years.

Rodgers-Cromartie has been one of the Giants' key defensive players, missing just two games since he arrived in NY.

Rodgers-Cromartie signed a five-year, $35 million deal with the Giants before the 2014 season. During Sunday's loss to the Chargers, the source said, Rodgers-Cromartie slammed his helmet down on the sideline, left the team while the game was in progress and went to the locker room with what teammates and coaches understood was the intent to leave the stadium.
