New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo said Monday afternoon, per multiple reports, that he will have “a conversation” with suspended cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie later this week.

ESPN’s Josina Anderson is reporting that conversation could take place Tuesday morning, with DRC scheduled to report to the Quest Diagnostics Center training facility at 9 a.m.

Rodgers-Cromartie was suspended last week after what McAdoo told NBC were “four separate incidents” involving the veteran cornerback. Those apparently occurred before, during and after the Week 5 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

On Wednesday, the suspension was termed “indefinite.”

Per the Collective Bargaining Agreement, an “indefinite” suspension can last as many as four weeks. After that time, a player must either be reinstated to the active roster or released.

Rodgers-Cromartie, 31, is in the fourth year of a five-year, $35 million contract. The Giants could save $6.5 million against the salary cap if they were to decide to part ways with him prior to next season.
