Kaepernick (shoulder) will play in Friday's preseason game against the Packers, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Kaepernick is ready to play after sitting out the first two preseason games with a sore shoulder. While he will suit up Friday, he will not start, as that spot will again be filled by Blaine Gabbert. The two remain in competition to start at quarterback Week 1, and Kaepernick will get a chance to stake claim to the job Friday night.
Lewis suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's preseason opener and will now miss the remainder of this season, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
Lewis was forced out during the third quarter of Sunday's game, when he was the second signal-caller used in wake of Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) being sidelined. However, now that his season has already come to a close, rookie Jeff Driskel should see more reps behind Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert in practice.
Tartt (undisclosed) was activated from the non-football injury list Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Tartt was sidelined after tweaking a muscle, but it is unclear where on his body the tweak occurred. However, it does not appear to be a serious issue, as he has returned after a one week absence. The 24-year-old currently projects to be the teams back up strong safety.
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.
Head coach Ben McAdoo expects Cruz (groin) to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Jets. "I'm ready," Cruz added. "It feels like a long time since I've been out there. ... Now it comes to life this Saturday."
A groin injury has impacted Cruz's ability to practice and kept him sidelined during the Giants' first two preseason contests. With back-to-back full practices Tuesday and Wednesday, though, the team's training staff is likely confident that the oft-injured wideout can handle the rigors of game action for the first time since October of 2014.
