Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC North:
After getting zero snaps in the preseason opener, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will play in Saturday's exhibition against the New York Giants.
Morning take: Roethlisberger needs his reps, too. So this is a good decision. He will be away from the team for at least a month once the regular season starts.
The time may be now for the Baltimore Ravens.
Morning take: They have the talent, depth and a great coaching staff. Barring injury, the Ravens have a lot of key ingredients for a deep postseason run.
The mystery continues over the severity of Cincinnati Bengals receiver Antonio Bryant's knee injury.
Morning take: Until the Bengals and/or Bryant come clean, there will be plenty of speculation. The latest, according to Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network, is Cincinnati might seek an injury settlement.
Cleveland Browns rookie safety T.J. Ward promises to be a quick learner.
Morning take: Ward is doing fine so far. But since he's expected to play a major role in Cleveland's defense, a lot is expected of him.
