"To be honest, coach called me up and he said some things and I kind of didn't agree with it and I handled it the wrong way," Rodgers-Cromartie said then. "At the end of the day, that's on me. So the suspension, I take that. All I can do is try to work back to get in good grace with the guys. I'm just glad that they didn't let this turn them from me and they accepted me and I'm just back working, man."
Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who was suspended for a week earlier this month for violating team rules, said players can either pick up their play or go the other way, which would likely earn them a seat on the bench.
