EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Suspended cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has met with New York Giants coach Ben McAdoo and has been told that his suspension is indefinite.

The Giants said the meeting took place Thursday morning.

Neither Rodgers-Cromartie nor McAdoo was immediately available for comment.

Players can be suspended a maximum of four weeks under the collective bargaining agreement.

The Giants suspended Rodger-Cromartie on Wednesday for leaving the team facility before practice. He had been told by McAdoo on Tuesday night that he would be inactive for Sunday night's game in Denver because he left the bench in the second half of a loss to the Chargers and went to the locker room. He later returned.

The 31-year-old told ESPN that he left the building because he was upset. He said he argued with McAdoo Sunday during the game.

The coach told him Tuesday that he would have to practice this week despite being inactive.
