Redskins' Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie: IR bound
Rodgers-Cromartie was placed on injured reserve Wednesday and will have ankle surgery, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Rodgers-Cromartie suffered a torn ligament in his ankle, according to Ben Standig of The Athletic. The veteran cornerback started in Week 2 because Quinton Dunbar (knee) and Fabian Moreau (ankle) were out, and the Redskins likely will rely on Jimmy Moreland and Simeon Thomas -- in addition to Josh Norman -- if neither Dunbar nor Moreau are healthy for Week 3's game versus the Bears. Rodgers-Cromartie could be activated from IR in Week 11, although there isn't a specific timeline for his recovery.... See More ... See Less

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie: Coming out of retirement
Rodgers-Cromartie has been reinstated in the NFL and wants to resume his playing career in 2019, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Rodgers-Cromartie shocked many people when he abruptly retired last October after appearing in seven games for the Raiders. Considering he didn't have much of a market before settling for a one-year deal with Oakland last offseason, it's no sure thing the impending 33-year-old will be able to land anything more than a depth role this time around....

Raiders' Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie: Questionable for Week 4
Rodgers-Cromartie (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Raiders' Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie: Signs with Oakland
Rodgers-Cromartie signed a contract with the Raiders on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Rodgers-Cromartie slides into a revamped Raiders' cornerback group that also added free agents Rashaan Melvin, Daryl Worley, Leon Hall, Shareece Wright and fourth-round pick Nick Nelson this spring. DRC seems unlikely to play in Friday's preseason game against the Packers with such a quick turnaround, but he could easily be ready to suit up for the preseason finale next week.... See More ...

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie: Visiting Oakland
Rodgers-Cromartie had a workout with the Raiders on Wednesday, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.
Rodgers-Cromartie was released by the Giants in March after being unable to agree on a pay reduction, and somewhat surprisingly remains a free agent with the regular season only a couple weeks away.

Giants' Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie: Informed of release
The Giants have informed Rodgers-Cromartie of his release, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The Giants asked Rodgers-Cromartie to take a pay cut and apparently weren't able to work anything out. Set to celebrate his 32nd birthday in April, the veteran cornerback shouldn't have too much trouble landing a contract from another team, as he's still capable of working outside or in the slot, even if he's not quite the player he once was. DRC's release increases the odds of the Giants re-signing Ross Cockrell, along with hinting at a desire to give 2016 first-round pick Eli Apple another shot. Janoris Jenkins (ankle) is the only safe bet among the team's remaining cornerbacks.... See More ... See Less
