Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC North:
  • Starting linebacker Lawrence Timmons re-tweaked his sprained left ankle, making his status unknown for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears.
Morning take: Backup receiver Limas Sweed also sprained his foot Wednesday, and it will be interesting to see if those two will be healthy enough by kickoff.
  • Speaking of health, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Tavares Gooden and tight end L.J. Smith returned to practice and expect to play against the San Diego Chargers.
Morning take: This should be one of the best games of the week, and the Ravens can certainly use all of their good players in the lineup.
  • After catching just one pass last week, Cleveland Browns top receiver Braylon Edwards is struggling to fit in.
Morning take: Cleveland’s offense doesn’t seem to fit Edwards’ strengths. Either Edwards will have to tailor his game or the coaches will have to find better ways to get him the football.
  • Cincinnati Bengals rookie right tackle Andre Smith (foot) probably won’t practice for another week or two.
Morning take: I don’t expect Smith to be a factor until at least October. Smith never got the chance to get into football shape this summer, so that will be his next challenge once the foot heals.
