New York Giants safety Landon Collins had some harsh words for a teammate during a Tuesday interview. More

Interim general manager Kevin Abrams and interim coach Steve Spagnuolo met with Apple and informed him of the suspension, according to the team, a day after Collins called him a "cancer" during a radio interview.

"There's only just one corner that. needs to grow, and we all know who that is", Collins told fill-in host Bob Wischusen. "That would be the only person I would change out of our secondary group". The other two guys - DRC [Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie] and Jack Rabbit [Janoris Jenkins] - I love those two guys.

"But that first pick. he's a cancer". It has been a hard second season in the National Football League for Apple, who was the Giants first-round pick a year ago.

Hours after the New York Daily News reported that Apple shrugged off reporters' questions about Collins' apology with a vulgar comment about needing to use the bathroom, the Giants have suspended their former first-round draft pick for Week 17. With the implication that he was a liar, Collins reportedly had to be restrained by his teammates from going after Apple, per Apple denied ever talking to Collins. It's fair to wonder if Apple will be back with the Giants in 2018. "I spoke highly of him".

Rain will transition to snow at some point tonight , but how much snow will be on the ground by gift opening time is less certain. Seahawks win and snow falling on Christmas Eve?! New data continues to show a mixed bag of rain and snow for Christmas morning.

Obviously, one player calling another "a cancer" like this is not something that happens every day, and it's even more freaky that the two are teammates.

During Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, Apple appeared completely disengaged from the goings-on between the lines at times.

It's been a disappointing season for the Giants, who many predicted would reach the playoffs.

When approached at his locker after the game and asked why he only played 7 snaps (all on special teams), Apple said: "It was a coach's decision".
