Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday in the AFC North:
With quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suspended four games, it's tailback Rashard Mendenhall's time to carry the offense of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Morning take: Expect Mendenhall to see a lot of eight in the box, starting this week against the Atlanta Falcons. A 100-yard game would greatly increase Pittsburgh's chances of winning.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Jake Delhomme is very familiar with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Morning take: Delhomme's experience with the Carolina Panthers and the NFC South could pay off this year. He already knows Tampa's scheme well heading into Sunday's game.
Baltimore Ravens rookie linebacker Sergio Kindle is optimistic about his chances to return this season.
Morning take: Head injuries are very serious. It's usually the nature of a player to rush back, but the Ravens need to be very cautious.
Former Cincinnati Bengals quarterback J.T. O'Sullivan found a job quickly, signing with the San Diego Chargers.
Morning take: Did O'Sullivan reach "cult favorite" status during his time in the AFC North the same way Frank Walker did? O'Sullivan may be on that short list.
