Rodgers-Cromartie (suspension) will be reinstated when the team returns to practice Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Giants aren't practicing on 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 as a starter in Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Rodgers-Cromartie, who was suspended indefinitely earlier in the week and won't play Sunday against the Broncos, is expected to rejoin the Giants in a few days and suit up in their Week 7 matchup versus the Seahawks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Collective Bargaining Agreement allows team-imposed suspensions to last no more than four games, but with Rodgers-Cromartie apparently making quick amends with the Giants coaching staff, it appears his ban may only last one game. The team is expected to speak with Rodgers-Cromartie again Sunday, after which his suspension could be formally lifted. Once he rejoins the Giants, it's expected that Rodgers-Cromartie will be plugged back into the slot cornerback role he had filled prior to being hit with the suspension.

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.

EDGE Analysis

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 was apparently involved in an argument with head coach Ben McAdoo earlier this week. He left and left the facility Wednesday without an excuse was suspended as a result, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This argument allegedly stemmed from McAdoo's decision to bench Rodgers-Cromartie at the end of a Week 5 matchup with the Chargers. There are clearly locker room issues and stress in the Giants locker room after they sent three wide receivers to injured reserve this week, and this will add to the unrest. McAdoo wouldn't reveal how long this suspension would be for, and it's likely Rodgers-Cromartie and the head coach will have to work things out before he gets back on the field.

Rodgers-Cromartie recorded a half-sack to go along with three tackles (two solo) in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

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%) in the contest. He 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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Rodgers-Cromartie (thigh) returned to the lineup Monday for a preseason showdown with Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran corner played 26 snaps and made two tackles Monday as he prepared for another season as the Giants' starter on the outside. There isn't a defensive-back battle in New York, it was more of a matter of getting healthy. Rodgers-Cromartie's posted career highs in pass breakups (21) and interceptions (6) in 2016, and he combined that with 49 tackles -- solidifying his role with the Giants.

Rodgers-Cromartie (thigh) is questionable to return to Sunday's wild-card playoff game against the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Rodgers-Cromartie went down on the second play from scrimmage. Trevin Wade will see additional playing time unless he returns.

Rodgers-Cromartie (back) was absent from the Giants' injury report Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Rodgers-Cromartie was limited in Monday's win over the Bengals. The Giants exercised caution with their veteran corner, which was apparently helpful given his absence form Wednesday's injury report. He appears on track to play Sunday.
