Morning take: Steelers lose punter for the season
Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker
Here is your one-stop shopping for the best storylines in the AFC North:
- Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writes Steelers punter Daniel Sepulveda is out for the entire 2008 season with a torn ACL in his right knee.
Morning take: This is a big blow if the Steelers fail to find a suitable replacement. The team signed Paul Ernster off waivers, and the last time I saw Ernster, he was a complete disaster in Cleveland. Where is Chris Gardocki when you need him?
- Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com says backup running back Chris Perry is turning heads in training camp.
Morning take: Perry has always looked impressive whenever he's healthy and on the field. He just hasn't been on the field enough.
- Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain Dealer writes that return specialist and backup receiver Joshua Cribbs lined up everywhere Tuesday, including at quarterback.
Morning take: Buyer beware! Although it is tempting to use Cribbs' unique talents as often as possible, the Browns have the best special teams in the AFC and should be very cautious not to wear Cribbs down to the point that it takes the edge off his electric returns.
- In what's becoming a daily occurrence, Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun notes that offensive tackle Adam Terry (ankle) is the latest Raven to go down.
Morning take: This is getting ridiculous. At this rate, the Baltimore Ravens may not have enough players to fill a 53-man roster at the start of the regular season.
