While Brown has been suspended only one game, the Daily News reported his ex-wife told police he had been violent with her more than 20 times.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Brown has been suspended one game for a violation of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 37-year-old kicker is going into his ninth season in the league and is coming off a 2015 campaign where he went 30-of-32 on field goal attempts. He'll sit out Week 1 for violating the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy, but should return as the team's main kicker shortly thereafter. Fellow kicker Tom Obarski is the current candidate to take on kicking duties in his place, barring any roster additions prior to the regular season opener.

Brown returned to practice Thursday after missing Wednesday's practice to due personal reasons, Tom Rock of Newsday Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brown's absence from training camp was brief as expected, while whatever issue he dealt with shouldn't impact his availability moving forward. The 37-year-old hasn't missed a game since 2012, a trend that doesn't appear to be in danger of changing.

Brown was excused from Wednesday's practice for personal reasons, Tom Rock of Newsday Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

The reason that Brown missed practice hasn't been disclosed, other than being described as personal, and he's without timetable for return. It's not expected at this time that he's gone for an extended period and he'll likely be back late this week.

Browns is expected to re-sign with the Giants on a two-year, $4 million deal, the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brown is fresh off the best statistical season of his 13-year career, as he converted 30-of-32 field goal attempts for the Giants last year. Although he'll turn 37 years old soon, Brown has shown little signs of aging and should provide a reliable weapon in New York's kicking game for the next couple campaigns.

Brown bruised his leg while making a tackle during the Giants' previous preseason game against the Jaguars, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Giants are bringing in Chris Boswell to handle kicking for the final preseason game Thursday, but even though he and Brown were in competition earlier in training camp, Brown is still expected to maintain his spot atop the depth chart when the season begins Sept. 13 in Dallas.

Brown made three of four field-goal attempts and connected on all four extra-point tries in Sunday's 37-27 win over the Rams.

Brown connected on field goals of 29, 37 and 52 yards en route to one of his best games of the season. However, he has scored in double figures just four times all year, making him a lackluster fantasy option for Week 17.

Brown hit all three of his field goal attempts Sunday against the Falcons.

Brown has seen an increased workload over the last three games with the Giants increasing their offensive output. He has gone 7-for-7 over that time span after not attempting a field goal in either of the first two contests. With the Eagles on tap in Week 6, Brown could be in line for work similar to the past three weeks.
