Morning take: Quinn to visit Dr. Andrews
Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker
Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC North:
- ESPN's Michael Smith reports Cleveland Browns quarterback Brady Quinn will visit Dr. James Andrews to get a second opinion on his broken right index finger.
Morning take: A visit to Dr. Andrews is usually not a good sign for a player. You have to wonder how much the injury will hurt Quinn's performance the rest of the year.
- Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer says he'll make his decision on potential elbow surgery in two weeks.
Morning take: At least Palmer has set a deadline. But why he would even consider coming back to an awful team with three games left is baffling.
- Mitch Berger is back at punter for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Paul Ernster is out.
Morning take: We felt Berger was a little better than Ernster in the first place. Although it's not a big difference maker, Berger should be a little more stable.
- The Baltimore Ravens' game against the Washington Redskins was moved to primetime on Dec. 7 at 8:15 p.m.
Morning take: Ravens fans have screamed for league-wide respect all year. Well, there is some league-wide respect.
