Morning take: Benson to start Sunday

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

Morning take: I wasn't surprised Benson got hurt with the amount of carries he was getting this season. Even with his return, the Bengals should aim to keep him as fresh as possible for the stretch run.

Morning take: Flacco has been dealing with a bum ankle for a couple weeks. It also didn’t help that Baltimore's offensive line (five sacks) didn't have its best performance against Pittsburgh.

Morning take: I think overall this is just frustration boiling over from losing. The Steelers need a win Sunday against the Oakland Raiders for more reasons than just improving their record.

Morning take: This has been a problem since Pool entered the NFL. He is due to become a free agent after the season, and unfortunately for Pool, teams will definitely consider his history of head injuries.
