Morning take: Ravens' starting CB?

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

  • Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh wouldn't say whether benched cornerback Fabian Washington will keep his starting job after the bye week.

Morning take: Washington has played decent this season but is coming off his worst performance as a Raven Sunday. The best thing for now is to evaluate both Washington and Josh Wilson in practice the next two weeks.

  • The Cincinnati Bengals don't have much to say after their 2-4 start.

Morning take: The time for talking is over. Cincinnati has to win Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, or you can write the Bengals off for 2010.

Morning take: Pittsburgh hasn't done well without Smith in the past, which is why this is a major concern. First-round pick Ziggy Hood's growth and maturity will be huge.

Morning take: Davis has shown flashes but didn't get much opportunity in Cleveland. The Browns have now sent Jerome Harrison and Davis packing in the past few weeks.
