Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie says he'll be back on Thursday

Rodgers-Cromartie has played in five games this season and has 26 tackles and half a sack.

Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was missing from practice on Wednesday, but it wasn't because of an injury. So the team suspended him.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the suspension stemmed from a "heated" argument between Rodgers-Cromartie and McAdoo that began when the cornerback was pulled from Sunday's game against the Chargers.

McAdoo didn't delve into what led to the conversation or give any idea about when Rodgers-Cromartie might be back with the team, but the cornerback touched on both in a conversation with Josina Anderson of ESPN following the coach's announcement.

Rodgers-Cromartie had left the team facility and was not available for comment. We had a conversation that was personal upstairs and he came in today, made a decision to leave.

Ryan said the actions of the gunman who killed at least 59 people and wounded hundreds more will not "define us as a country". Portman said the bill could unfairly impinge on innocent transfers, such as giving a hunting rifle to a second cousin.

According to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, Rodgers-Cromartie had a conversation with McAdoo on Tuesday and again on Wednesday, when he ultimately chose to leave practice shortly after he got there.

Shepard is expected to miss Sunday's game against the Broncos and, although the Giants are listing him as day-to-day, he's likely to also be unavailable for when they return home for the October 22 game against Seattle at MetLife Stadium.

At 0-5, the New York Giants are going nowhere fast.

The Giants have a bye after that, so Shepard would conceivably get three weeks to treat his left ankle injury before returning to action.
