The Giants announced the suspension late Wednesday afternoon after Apple had participated in the practice.
The two have been back and forth with each other with Collins saying he had a conversation with Apple about his professionalism and personal struggles, while Apple denied the conversation happened, according to NJ Media. He and Apple met separately with Spagnuolo and then all three talked. Those remarks came on the heels of one report that Apple threatened to walk out on the team after his play was criticized and another that the 2016 first-round pick is "disliked" within the organization.
Collins would later apologise to the 22-year-old during a team meeting.
The Giants host the Washington Redskins (7-8) on Sunday in their season finale.
Trump signs tax bill
Republican lawmakers and administration officials contend that the massive tax cuts will spur economic growth for years to come. The bill is a "historic victory" and "an incredible Christmas gift for hardworking Americans", Trump said earlier this week.

Collins underwent surgery on Christmas and the Giants placed one of their team leaders - not to mention one of their best players - on injured reserve, ending his season.
Head coach Ben McAdoo was sacked earlier in the month.
Apple appeared in 11 games with NY this season, making seven starts.
So how did that go over with Apple?
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.
