EAST RUTHERFORD -- Suspended Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie reported to the team's facility on Thursday morning, according to a person familiar with the situation. Rodgers-Cromartie was in the locker room with the rest of his teammates as they reported for work.

Rodgers-Cromartie was suspended by coach Ben McAdoo after leaving the facility on Wednesday.

Rodgers-Cromartie was upset after learning that he would be inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos during a meeting with McAdoo on Tuesday. Rodgers-Cromartie was being disciplined for his actions during the second half of last Sunday's 27-22 loss to the Chargers when he left the bench area briefly and, according to Rodgers-Cromartie's comments to an ESPN reporter, had an argument with McAdoo on the sideline.

Recapping a dysfunctional season

McAdoo didn't disclose the length of Rodgers-Cromartie's suspension on Wednesday. The Record reported that Rodgers-Cromartie was expected to meet with McAdoo on Thursday to discuss the length of the suspension.

ESPN reported that the Giants plan to welcome Rodgers-Cromartie back "with a clean slate once he has served his punishment." The same reporter indicated that Rodgers-Cromartie's suspension could be more than one game.

Teams can suspend a player without pay for conduct detrimental to the team for no more than four weeks, according to the collective bargaining agreement.

ESPN also reported that Rodgers-Cromartie "walked out of the team's 'recovery day' session" last Friday. Players have the option of various treatments on Friday, including massages, yoga and stretching.

Rodgers-Cromartie told the team's strength coaches that he was going to use the team's hot/cold tubs instead, but didn't leave the facility, according to a person familiar with the situation. Using the tubs during a recovery day is not an uncommon practice, according to the source.

The Giants are pathetic, embarrassing and an all-time flop
