Giants' Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie questionable for Sunday vs. Cowboys

Friday October 17th, 2014

Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie returned to practice Friday on a limited basis. He is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys

Rodgers-Cromartie is dealing with both back spasms and a hamstring injury. The hamstring issue is something that has plagued him for a few weeks now. The back spasms, which are believed to be a result of the hamstring problem, arose during Sunday's loss to the Eagles

If Rodgers-Cromartie were unable to play Sunday, the Giants would be left with four other corners: Prince Amukamara, Jayron Hosley, Zack Bowman and Chandler Fenner

Giants head coach Tom Coughlin "didn't give any indication that [Rodgers-Cromartie] will play Sunday," Mitchell Abramson of the New York Daily News reports.

Rodgers-Cromartie, 28, has played in all six of the Giants' games this season. He has 15 tackles, eight passes defended and one interception.

Backup outside linebacker Spencer Paysinger is also listed as questionable. Running back Rashad Jennings had already been ruled out with a knee injury

Offensive lineman Doug Free and linebacker Bruce Carter are out for the Cowboys.
