Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North: Morning take: This is interesting for several reasons. First, it shows there is legitimate concern with Emmanuel Sanders' foot injury. Second, getting Cotchery would prevent Baltimore from adding help at a thin position.
Morning take: Baltimore's coaching staff has been unable to figure out Kruger. The Ravens tried him at linebacker two years ago and defensive end last year. Now, Kruger is back at linebacker.
Morning take: The Bengals have good competition going this summer. I'm interested to see how battles turn out on the offensive and defensive lines.
Morning take: After a rough start, McCoy improved in practice later in the week. McCoy needs to continue to make strides heading into the regular season.
