Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle) returned to Sunday's game in Washington, John Clayton of ESPN reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Rodgers-Cromartie suffered what appeared to be a serious non-contact injury early in the second quarter, requiring help to leave the field. While he was initially deemed questionable to return, he was able to do so and will likely line up across from Jayron Hosley, as long as remains in the game.

Rodgers-Cromartie is questionable to return to Sunday's game at Washington due to an ankle injury, John Clayton of ESPN reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Rodgers-Cromartie suffered a non-contact injury in the second quarter and required assistance to reach the sideline. Because he was unable to place any weight on his right foot, he may be hard-pressed to return to action, but Trumaine McBride will cover for Rodgers-Cromartie in the meantime.

Rodgers-Cromartie (concussion) is not listed on the injury report for Sunday's game in Buffalo.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Rodgers-Cromartie missed a Week 3 Thursday game against the Redskins, but he might have been able to play if the game had been on Sunday. Although the Giants will be pleased to have him back in the starting lineup, Rodgers-Cromartie is unlikely to have a strong IDP showing against the run-heavy Buffalo offense.

Rodgers-Cromartie (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday's contest versus Washington, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With such a short turnaround this week, Rodgers-Cromartie wasn't afforded much time to emerge from the league's concussion protocol and will thus take a seat. In his stead, expect Jayron Hosley to fill in at cornerback.

There's a good chance Rodgers-Cromartie will miss Thursday's game against the Redskins while he's in the concussion protocol.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Typically it takes more than the few days the Giants have to turn around and play the Redskins. Fortunately for the Giants, deep threat DeSean Jackson might not be playing, either.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Rodgers-Cromartie, the starting left cornerback for the Giants, is a key component of their pass defense. Third-year Jason Hosley is his backup and will have his hands full against a solid Falcons' passing offense.

Rodgers-Cromartie, who played at around 190 pounds last season, bulked up to 208 pounds during the offseason, NJ.com reports.

Anticipating that he'll be asked to play more press coverage and contribute more to stopping the run, Rodgers-Cromartie swapped out his daily McDonalds for a healthier diet that includes more calories. He has a reputation as a cover man who can't really tackle, but he's hoping to change that perception in 2015 while playing under defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. IDP owners would still be wise to look elsewhere, as DRC recorded just 38 tackles (36 solo) in 16 games last season. He's never topped 51 tackles in a season, but he does have 21 interceptions through his first seven years.

After struggling to stay healthy for most of the year, Rodgers-Cromartie played all the Giants defensive snaps Sunday, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

He got a high grade (+2.8) from Pro Football Focus for his work and would have had a pick-six were it not for a penalty from Damontre Moore.
