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

Morning take: McAlister started the year fast, but his level of play dropped off and he was eventually benched. You wonder how much a banged up McAlister could help if he decides to return?

Morning take: But Rivers said the hit was clean. Most of Ward's victims contend otherwise, but Rivers is not among them.

Morning take: This is not surprising. Jurevicius' knee has been through multiple surgeries in less than a year due to a routine procedure and subsequent staph infection. The bigger question is will he try to give it a go next year?

Morning take: Maybe. But there's no point in reflecting at this juncture. It's time to look ahead and move forward.
