The New York Giants have ended cornerback #Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie's "indefinite" suspension days after recording their first win -- a 23-10 triumph over the Denver Broncos. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network Insider, Rodgers-Cromartie will return to the team’s East Rutherford facility after Tuesday's off day.

The Giants suspended the cornerback indefinitely after he engaged head coach Ben McAdoo in a series of heated argument dating back to their loss to the Los Angeles Chargers last Sunday that dropped them to 0-5. The suspension added to the team’s woes, including wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.’s season-ending injury.

The Giants saw the need for Rodgers-Cromartie after they gave up nearly 400 passing yards to Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian. Before his suspension, Rodgers-Cromartie has played fewer snaps than Eli Apple and Janoris Jenkins.

Jaguars sign kicker Josh Lambo

The Jacksonville Jaguars have released struggling kicker Jason Myers and signed former Charger #Josh Lambo, according to the team’s official website. The Jaguars made the move after Myers missed to field goals in their 27-17 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 6. The 26-year-old Myers has struggled all season as the Jaguars booter, missing four of 15 field goal tries and failed to convert to extra points. Aside from his struggles, Myers hasn’t been able to find the range as he failed to make a field goal longer than 47 yards this season.

A third-year pro, Myers struggled in the preseason but the Jaguars stuck with him as their kicker.

Now that the Jaguars are on top of the AFC South, they will try to put some stability in their kicking by bringing in Lambo. The 26-year-old Lambo played the last two seasons with the Chargers, where he hit 52 of 64 field goal attempts and 70 of 78 extra points. However, Lambo lost his starting job to Younghoe Koo, who was later cut by the Chargers.

Saints still wary about Packers

The New Orleans Saints will not take the Green Bay Packers lightly when they collide on Sunday despite the absence of veteran quarterback #Aaron Rodgers, who will undergo surgery on his injured collarbone. Rodgers suffered the injury in their 23-10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings Sunday after linebacker Anthony Barr drove him to the ground [VIDEO]. Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan told Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune that they cannot take for granted Rodgers’ backup, Brett Hundley, who showed some potential after taking over the quarterback job against the Vikings, completing 18 of 33 passes for 157 yards and three interceptions. Hundley is surrounded by talents such as Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Davante Adams and Ty Montgomery.
