Morning take: Steelers suffer injuries
By James Walker
Here are the most interesting stories Sunday in the AFC North:
Morning take: Neither injury is considered serious. That is a good thing, because depth on Pittsburgh's offensive line is lacking. This will give young players a chance to get significant reps in practice.
- The Pittsburgh Steelers suffered injuries in practice to starting offensive linemen Jonathan Scott (ankle) and Ramon Foster (unspecified).
Morning take: Cotchery is probably the best of what's left at receiver. The Ravens failed to land Malcom Floyd and Derrick Mason. Now it's pretty slim pickings.
Morning take: The Browns still have a long way to go offensively from what I've seen in camp. Fortunately for Cleveland, there is a month of practices and four preseason games before the regular season.
- Cleveland Browns coach Pat Shurmur says the new West Coast offense will come along.
Morning take: "Grind" is a good word to explain what the Bengals and Browns are going through offensively. The team and quarterback that learns the fastest likely will prevail in Week 1.
