AFC Notes: Bengals, Browns, Ravens

  • As for RB Joe Mixon‘s neck injury, Taylor said the running back has “no issue” and did not practice on Wednesday due to a non-COVID-19 related illness. (Kelsey Conway)



  • Ravens HC John Harbaugh said it is “on the table” for them to deploy a more up-tempo and no-huddle offense. (Jeff Zrebiec)
  • Regarding finding solutions for dealing with pressure on Lamar Jackson, Harbaugh said they will look at things “schematically” to deal with pass rushes: “There are going to be things that you got to work on that you got to work through and get past schematically, personnel-wise, execution-wise, idea-wise.” (Jamison Hensley)
  • Harbaugh believes the added pressure from defenses is the “nature of a long season” with teams scheming against them: “That’s the nature of a long season that you’re going to have turns in the road that you got to work through. It’s not the end of the world. We’ve made plays against, whatever you’re talking about, blitz or whatever it is.” (Hensley)
