While Brown has been suspended only one game, the the Daily News reported his ex-wife told police he had been violent with her more than 20 times.
While this report only addresses her statement to the police and does not tell his side of the story, that it came after his suspension opens a new can of worms for him and the Giants. Even though the charges were dismissed, the report is not a good look for Brown or the Giants, and you have to wonder whether they'll decide to take further action internally or even release him. They signed Brown to a two-year, $4 million in April after knowing about his arrest, but perhaps they didn't know about his wife's more detailed report to the police. Given how fungible kickers are in fantasy, and that Brown's already out one game, we'd recommend looking elsewhere at the position.
Cruz (groin) will play in Saturday's preseason game against the Jets, Newsday's Art Stapleton reports.
Hobbled by a groin injury through the first two weeks of the preseason, Cruz will finally return to game action for the first time since October of 2014. Despite the extended layoff, he hopes to lock down the No. 3 wideout job in a Giants receiving corps that lacks talent behind starters Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard.
