Giants’ injury news: Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (thigh) questionable to return

Eli Apple, Trevin Wade replace DRC in big spot

NFL: New York Giants at Washington Redskins Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

New York Giants’ All-Pro cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie left Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers with favoring his right leg. Word is DRC suffered a thigh bruise and is officially questionable to return.

Eli Apple and Trevin Wade will step in but it would be a huge loss for the Giants if Rodgers-Cromartie is unable to return. He led the team with six interceptions during the regular-season and for all the talk about how well Janoris Jenkins has played, DRC wasn’t too far behind him.

Rodgers-Cromartie initially remained on the sideline being worked on by Giants’ medical staff before eventually returning to the locker room.

The Giants need all hands on deck to contain Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers. He’s been the hottest quarterback in the league, throwing 18 touchdown passes to no interceptions during the Packers’ six-game winning streak. Rodgers finished the year with 41 TDs and only seven interceptions.
