  • Rodgers-Cromartie (suspension) will be reinstated when the team returns to practice Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of reports. The Giants aren't practicing Tuesday due to taking a pair of days off following their trip out west this weekend, but the cornerback should be on the practice field Wednesday. Expect Rodgers-Cromartie to be a full go in Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

  • Rodgers-Cromartie met with Giants head coach Ben McAdoo at team facilities Thursday, but was informed that he remains under an indefinite suspension, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. The Collective Bargaining Agreement allows team-imposed suspensions to last no more than four games, so technically, Rodgers-Cromartie's ban would have to be lifted prior to the Giants' Nov. 19 game against the Chiefs. Rodgers-Cromartie, who had started four of the Giants' first five games, was told earlier this week that he would be made inactive for Sunday's game in Denver, prompting the veteran to show up at the facility Wednesday morning, only to go missing before practice. The Giants haven't revealed their conditions for Rodgers-Cromartie to be reinstated from the suspension, but he'll lose $410,588 in pay for each game he misses. Eli Apple and Janoris Jenkins are in line to serve as the Giants' starting cornerbacks in Week 6 with Rodgers-Cromartie out of the mix.

  • Rodgers-Cromartie recorded a half-sack to go along with three tackles (two solo) in Sunday's 25-23 loss to the Buccaneers. Rodgers-Cromartie recorded the sack along with teammate Jason Pierre-Paul on a 3rd-and-10 late in the third quarter. The veteran cornerback saw the field for 52 snaps (81.0 percent) in the contest and figures to see a similar workload going forward.

  • Rodgers-Cromartie will likely remain the Giants' slot corner with Janoris Jenkins (ankle/hand) active for Sunday's tilt against Philadelphia. Rodgers-Cromartie appeared to be in line for a starting role in Sunday's game against the Eagles with Jenkins' status in question. Jenkins does appear to be less than 100 percent, which could still lead to a slightly larger than usual role for Rodgers-Cromartie.

  • Rodgers-Cromartie will operate as the No. 1 cornerback if teammate Janoris Jenkins (ankle/hand) doesn't play Sunday against the Eagles, Dan Duggan of NJ Advance Media reports. Jenkins is questionable to play with separate hand and ankle injuries. The Giants are going to test him out Saturday, and if things go well, they then plan to see how things go in pregame warmups. If he's ultimately ruled out, Rodgers-Cromartie -- who typically plays in the slot -- would become the team's de facto top corner and consequently spend more time on the outside in base defense. However, the Eagles heavily rely on three-receiver sets, so the Giants probably won't be using much of their base defense anyway. In the end, Jenkins' potential absence would likely amount to an extra dozen or so snaps for Rodgers-Cromartie.
