Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC North:
Baltimore Ravens linebacker Sergio Kindle will make his NFL debut Thursday against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Morning take: Not many players suffer the kind of head injury Kindle had. This has the potential of a great bounce-back story if Kindle can stay healthy and play well in 2011.
Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Hines Ward (thumb) returned to practice this week.
Morning take: This is good news for Pittsburgh. The Steelers have suffered injuries at the receiver position and need some healthy returns.
Cleveland Browns No. 1 receiver Mohamed Massaquoi is suffering from a bone injury in his left leg, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.
Morning take: This brings up two questions: Will Massaquoi be ready for the regular-season opener and, if not, why won't the Browns get quarterback Colt McCoy some help.
Michael Johnson of the Cincinnati Bengals is getting a new beginning at defensive end.
Morning take: Cincinnati played Johnson out of position last season at outside linebacker. He's already making plays and looking more comfortable this summer as a starting defensive end.
