Antonio Smith may sit out practice this week.
Smith is the subject of a child abuse investigation in Texas. The case has been dragging on for some time now, with the DA sifting through the report from the Fort Bend County Sheriff since February. Even if the case is ultimately dropped by the prosecutor, Smith could still face discipline from the league as part of its effort to improve its public image, as part of the personal conduct policy under the CBA between the players union and the league.

Bears have released DL Ray McDonald.
As reported earlier Ray McDonald was arrested on Domestic Violance charges again, the third time in 9 months. The Bears wasted no time cutting ties with the newly acquired defensive end.

Ray McDonald has been arrested again on a domestic violence charge, two San Jose police sources told NBC Bay Area on Monday.
Ray McDonald has now been accused of violence against women three times in the last nine months. We do not know all of the details but there are also reports of child endangerment as well. This is the third time McDonald has been accused of violence against women in the last nine months. If you remember McDonald had previously escaped discipline from both the police and the NFL on the first two incidents, one of which was an alleged rape that occurred during a party and another alleged domestic incident of a pregnant woman. The former 49ers defensive end signed a one-year contract with the Bears for $1.05 million. Analysis: Drew Phelps
