Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC North:
Things are starting off better for Cleveland Browns head coach Eric Mangini in his second season.
Morning take: Stability at quarterback is one major improvement. Players also better understand the second year of Mangini's program.
Rookie linebacker Sergio Kindle, who recently fractured his skull, will join the Baltimore Ravens by early September.
Morning take: This is good progress for Kindle. He will not return to the field any time soon, but at least he will be under the team's supervision.
Pittsburgh Steelers rookie linebacker Stevenson Sylvester is pushing for a roster spot.
Morning take: The fifth-round pick had his best preseason game last week with a sack against the New York Giants. Pittsburgh has several tough decisions to make on its 53-man roster.
Cincinnati Bengals rookie defensive lineman Geno Atkins is turning heads.
Morning take: The Bengals may have found a mid-round gem. Atkins is leading the team in tackles (13) and sacks (3.5).
