Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

Morning take: The Steelers signed Hartwig in free agency to do exactly that. The only question is what took him so long?

  • Baltimore Ravens left tackle Jared Gaither (ankle) returned to practice Monday and should be ready for the regular season.

Morning take: Finally, the Ravens got some good injury news. The inexperienced Gaither is returning just in time to get enough reps to be ready for the season opener Sept. 7.

  • ESPN.com's John Clayton reports Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Johnson has a partially-torn labrum, which is more severe than the shoulder sprained the team originally described.

Morning take: Johnson will have to manage this injury all season to make sure there is no re-aggravation of his left shoulder. For more insight click here.
