The New York Giants are suspending cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie after he left the team Wednesday, head coach Ben McAdoo announced.

Rodgers-Cromartie later confirmed he had an argument with McAdoo over playing time, but he claims he was suspended before he walked out.

The 31-year-old was a key piece to a Giants defense that was one of the league's best a year ago, totaling six interceptions and 49 tackles in 2016.

This news is the latest development in a season that is going terribly for the Giants. New York is 0-5 after being a preseason playoff contender and lost the majority of its receiving corps to injury last Sunday.
