Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC North:

Morning take: With Reggie Kelly already out for the season, it may be up to rookie tight end Chase Coffman to start for Cincinnati in the preseason. Coffman also is coming back from foot surgery.

  • Things are still quiet on the status of Pittsburgh Steelers starting offensive guard Darnell Stapleton (knee).

Morning take: Stapleton already had an MRI, which leads me to believe the team knows the deal by now. I'm not exactly sure why an update hasn't been provided.

  • Baltimore Ravens safety Dawan Landry is on the mend after suffering a spinal injury last season.

Morning take: With Jim Leonhard's exit in free agency, the Ravens could use a good year from Landry back in the starting lineup.

  • Cleveland Browns running backs Jamal Lewis and James Davis are forging a good bond in training camp.

Morning take: The veteran and the rookie both went to Douglass High School in Atlanta about a decade apart. Now they join in Cleveland with hopes of bringing the Browns a running game this season.
