Morning take: Rolle set to return

Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

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

  • Cornerback Samari Rolle, following neck surgery, is set to return this week for the Baltimore Ravens.

Morning take: Rolle has had a tough go at it health-wise. But Baltimore can definitely use him in the second half of the season.

Morning take: This is a big decision for Pittsburgh. Roethlisberger will not be 100 percent and the Steelers need to think of their long-term goals. Yet, they can't afford to drop home games in November and December.

Morning take: We know why "Uncle Charlie" is excited. The Denver Broncos have the NFL's version of Navy's defense.

Morning take: Thanks to all the Bengals fans who participated. I felt like a counselor at times jotting down all the frustrations.
