AFC North Headlines: Injury Bug Biting before Camps Open



Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis was interviewed by Lance McAlister on Sports Talk 700 WLW Wednesday night, and reveled that Dre Kirkpatrick is not in danger of missing the start of the regular season, and that Leon Hall should be ready for the teams’ first practice on Friday.


Six Steelers will open training camp on the PUP list, including safety Damon Cromartie-Smith, defensive-tackle Casey Hampton, linebacker James Harrison, running back Rashard Mendenhall, tackle Max Starks, and linebacker Jason Worilds.


The Ravens’ physically unable to perform list includes Pernell McPhee (knee), Kelechi Osemele (leg), David Reed (knee and Jah Reid (calf), while Terrelll Suggs, Courtney Upshaw and Bruce Figgins have been placed on the non-football injury list.


Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin wants WR Mike Wallace with the Steelers as they open training camp, and that his apparent holdout is ‘unfortunate’


The Bengals agree to a contract extension with DC Mike Zimmer. The Cincinnati Enquirer speculates it’s a three-year deal, which would mean he’s signed through the 2014 season.


Browns Rookie QB Brandon Weeden opened training camp as the first-team quarterback, with Colt McCoy on the second-string, despite talk that Colt will likely be released if a trade cannot be consummated.


Now that Ravens RB Ray Rice has a brand new contract, he has decided one of his first priorities is to buy his mom a new house. Hear that Dez Bryant?


Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon admitted he lied when he recently said he hadn’t failed a drug test at Utah. He originally failed a drug test at Baylor, which led to his dismissal and subsequent transfer to Utah, where he sat out the past season while practicing with the team.
