49ers OLB Ahmad Brooks allegedly assaulted teammate Lamar Divens on June 8.

Brooks allegedly struck Divens three times in the head with a beer bottle, and then punched him in the face during an argument over car keys outside Brooks' home. Divens, a journeyman defensive tackle, was left bloodied and needed three stitches. The alleged attack was witnessed by two other 49ers, rookies Mike Purcell and Lawrence Okoye. At the time, Divens said he wanted to press charges and a warrant for Brooks was issued. Divens has since changed his mind and now the District Attorney is debating whether to press charges. The 49ers gave Brooks a six-year, $37 million contract last year despite off-field issues dating back to his time with the Bengals and at the University of Virginia.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Colts C Ryan Kelly (foot surgery) will miss 6-8 weeks.

Schefter reports Kelly will have a "bone defect" in his foot repaired on Friday. The timeline puts him out until at least October. The linchpin of an improving offensive line, this is a massive blow to a Colts' offense which might also have to start the season without Andrew Luck. Indy will likely look to bring in some outside help.

Mitchell Trubisky knows he still has "a lot of work to do."

Trubisky was the talk of the first preseason week after completing 18-of-25 passes for 166 yards and a touchdown, but he is not getting too far ahead. "I was pleased with how I played," the rookie said, "but plenty more mistakes are going on during practice for me that I need to work on and continue to improve in my game." The Bears have been adamant about Mike Glennon starting all season, but their resolve will be tested if Trubisky continues to show well in the preseason.

ESPN Giants reporter Jordan Raanan reports LT Ereck Flowers had a rough practice on Monday.

Raanan writes Flowers had "five or six awful reps" which "several ex-NFL offensive linemen and some independent offensive line coaches" agreed were "brutal." One of those experts said the session was the, "Worst I’ve seen, period." The practice is not an aberration, either, as Flowers has consistently struggled throughout camp. The Giants bet on Flowers improving this offseason, but it looks like left tackle will once again be a huge area of concern.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians questioned John Brown's place on the team if he is not able to overcome his sickle-cell issues.

Arians said he does not "have any choice" but to wait on Brown to fully recover, but even then the coach is not sure Brown can contribute. "If he can’t run long enough (after he returns)," Arians said, "you’ve got to replace him." The coach has never been one to mince words, but this is a particularly harsh comment considering the illness Brown is battling. Still, Arians is clearly at his wit's end with his receiver group, and it would not be surprising if changes are on the horizon. Brown is a risky pick in the ninth round.

Both John Brown and coach Bruce Arians acknowledged Brown's sickle-cell trait is still an issue for Brown's health.

Brown has battled continued soft-tissue ailments, and says his sickle-cell trait slows the healing and recovery process. "That’s a fact," confirmed Arians. In such a violent sport where elite athletes are moving full speed in an open field, the ability to recover from injuries is absolutely critical for football-playing availability. Fantasy leaguers need to tread cautiously with Brown in drafts.

Third-round pick Kenny Golladay worked primarily with the first-team offense for the first time in training camp Wednesday.

To this point, Golladay had practiced primarily with Jake Rudock and the second team. Golladay has outplayed second-team status, and is now getting a long look with the Matthew Stafford group. Beat writer Dave Birkett expects Golden Tate to move to slot receiver if Golladay wins a starting outside job across from Marvin Jones. Golladay remains a better Dynasty than re-draft investment, but it's past time we took him seriously as a 2017 fantasy factor.

Ty Montgomery (leg) is expected to miss the Packers' second preseason game.

Montgomery is "working through" a lower leg injury that's sidelined him the last two days. The missed time creates some depth-chart leaping for fourth-rounder Jamaal Williams, who's getting most of Montgomery's practice reps. Williams is expected to start Saturday at Washington.

Brock Osweiler will start the Browns' second preseason game.

It's an expected decision despite Osweiler's poor showing in his preseason debut. DeShone Kizer will be the second quarterback through the rotation and remains in the mix for Cleveland's Week 1 job. Whoever starts the third preseason game will open the year as the starter.

The Baltimore Sun reports the Ravens are "close to a deal" with free agent C Jeremy Zuttah.

The Ravens have heated up talks with Zuttah after his Indy visit. The Colts are "still in the picture," but it would be surprising if Zuttah didn't return to Baltimore after a Pro Bowl 2016. Zuttah's multiple team interest should land him some guaranteed money.

Cowboys TE Rico Gathers is in the league's concussion protocol.

One of the most impressive players through two weeks of preseason, Gathers was hurt in Tuesday's practice. Consider him week-to-week for now and doubtful for Dallas' third exhibition. Gathers has a 7-106-2 line this preseason.

Seahawks seventh-round RB Chris Carson "got turns" with the first-team offense at Tuesday's practice.

Thomas Rawls (undisclosed) sat out practice, so all three of Eddie Lacy, C.J. Prosise, and Carson got reps with the ones. Beat writer Sheil Kapadia notes Carson is "clearly ahead" of Alex Collins for the fourth running back job. Carson has been talked up multiple times this summer and had a strong showing in the preseason opener, rushing for a pair of touchdowns. Carson is a name to monitor in Dynasty leagues behind a trio of injury-prone running backs.
