Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC North:
The Pittsburgh Steelers' 53-man roster is quickly coming into focus.
Morning take: Pittsburgh's veteran-laden roster is pretty easy to predict. But there may be a surprise here and there, such as return specialist Stefan Logan.
Baltimore Ravens Pro Bowl defensive end/linebacker Terrell Suggs could return for Thursday's preseason finale against the Atlanta Falcons.
Morning take: Suggs has been out since Aug. 2 with a heel injury. Starters won't play long, but any amount of work will help sharpen his skills.
Veteran offensive lineman Ryan Tucker was reportedly released by the Cleveland Browns.
Morning take: Tucker was one of Cleveland's best offensive linemen for a long time. But age and injuries eventually caught up with him.
Daniel Coats is poised to be the starting tight end of the Cincinnati Bengals.
Morning take:No one could have guessed Coats would win this job at the start of training camp. But injuries are always unpredictable in the NFL.
