Eli Apple will miss the final week of the regular season through suspension

The latest episode involving Apple came earlier this week, when teammate Landon Collins called him "a cancer", comments for which he later apologized.

Apple was with the team and on the practice field Wednesday, but when approached for comments afterwards, the 24-year-old dismissed reporters, telling them he needed to go "take a [expletive]".

Apple was notified of the suspension this afternoon in a meeting with interim general manager Kevin Abrams and interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo.

"(Landon and I) had a quick conversation this morning and then I had a quick conversation with Eli", said Spagnuolo. "I never stop supporting my brother/teammate Eli and the rest of my teammates as we move forward", he wrote.

The feud started a few weeks back when Apple denied having conversations with Collins about his behavior, which included him tweeting from the sideline during a loss to the Dallas Cowboys on December 14. The bad news for Apple is that Collins is likely a lock in any of the team's future plans.

Well, not quite. The damage is certainly done, and Collins ended up playing a small role in that.

It was his vulgar disrespect of those covering the team that seemed to push the Giants over the edge.

Make no mistake: Apple's presence has gotten in the way of their performance.

NY went to the playoffs last season, but 2017 has been a nightmare for the Giants.

The Giants host the Washington Redskins (7-8) on Sunday in their season finale.

Apple said the next day that he had not spoken to Collins about anything.

The New York Giants announced Monday they'd suspended the cornerback for the final game of the 2017 season.

Apple's lack of effort was also reportedly put on display in front of the whole team by ex-head coach Ben McAdoo following a loss to the 49ers in Week 10, which led him to almost walking out of the team facility. A new regime might want to rid the team of problems and start over.

"There's only just one corner that. needs to grow, and we all know who that is", Collins said. "That would be the only person I would change out of our secondary group. That first pick, he's a cancer". After a decent rookie season, he did not play a defensive snap in Week 16. Tape has shown a notable lack of effort/interest in tackling at times, he missed time due to a personal issue and a hip injury and he most recently drew ire for tweeting from the sideline during a Week 14 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

The New York Post reported last month that Apple almost left the team facility after he was criticized for making bad plays during a film session.

And now, with one game left in the Giants' roller coaster season, Apple has been shut down by his own team.
