AFC North Notes: Bengals, Browns, Ravens



Bengals TE Tyler Eifert, who has dealt with injuries the past few years, says he had “a lot of fun out there” in Week 1 and it’s good to have the injuries behind him. 

“I had a lot of fun out there,” Eifert said, via the Cincinnati Enquirer. “I wish we could have found a way to win the game. It felt good to be back out there.  For me, feeling good gives you a little extra energy. It feels good to feel good. It’s been a long time since the injury actually happened. It’s been good to get my legs under me, all my strength back. The ankle feels good. It’s not even a thought right now.

  • The Bengals officially ruled out T Cordy Glenn (concussion) and WR A.J. Green (ankle) for Week 2 and list S Clayton Fejedelem (ankle), RB Joe Mixon (ankle), and RB Trayveon Williams (foot) as questionable.


During Week 1’s loss to the Titans, CB Malcolm Butler told Browns WR Jarvis Landry that they didn’t have heart. However, Landry disagrees with Butler’s assessment of their team. 

It was just kind of what I said,” Landry said, via Pro Football Talk. “I know the guys that are in the building. I know the guys that I go to work with every day and how hard we work. . . . It is definitely [a dig] for somebody to say that. It definitely kind of like took me by surprise for a second. At the same time, opponents are willing to say anything. You just kind of have to take it for what it is. In that matter, I know the guys here. I know that everybody is going to play until four quarters, 0:00 on the clock and the winner is decided. That was kind of my answer to it.
