MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The suspension of Quintez Cephus leaves Wisconsin without one of its top receivers for the foreseeable future. Cephus was charged with felony sexual assault on Monday, accused of misconduct involving two women at his apartment last April. He had already taken a leave of absence and posted a tweet over the weekend, before charges were filed, in which he denied wrongdoing. On the field, the Badgers still have a solid receiving corps with A.J. Taylor, Kendric Pryor and Danny Davis.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Injuries and unexpected developments have left the Green Bay Packers thin at running back with just two camp practices and two games left in the preseason. Only Ty Montgomery, who has overcome injury issues in the past, and little-known halfback Joel Bouagnon have made it through camp unscathed.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Travis Shaw and Christian Yelich homered, Chase Anderson settled in after giving up two solo homers and the Milwaukee Brewers rallied for a 5-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Shaw's two-run homer off Homer Bailey put the Brewers up 3-2 in the sixth. Anderson, pitching on seven days' rest, entered tied for the NL lead with 24 homers allowed and gave up second-inning solo shots to Eugenio Suarez and Phillip Ervin as the Reds took a 2-0 lead. Anderson then retired his final 14 hitters.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin has suspended Quintez Cephus after authorities charged the wide receiver with two felony counts of sexual assault. The Dane County District Attorney's Office has charged Quintez Cephus with third-degree sexual assault and second-degree sex assault of an intoxicated victim. He has denied any wrongdoing tied to the April incidents.
