Reggie Kelly isn't always appreciated as the tight-end of the high-scoring Bengals offense. There's an over-whelming expectation that the tight end should be a 50-80 reception position. Since joining the Bengals in 2003, Kelly has 44 receptions for 264-yards and two touchdowns; hardly a spectacular showing from a tight end with an offense ranked in the upper-half in the league the last three seasons.

But catching passes isn't apart of Bob Bratkowski's offensive game-plan. As Mark Curnutte discusses, Kelly contributes way more than the stats indicate.

Speaking of tight ends, the Browns have one that talks more than plays. And Romeo Crennel isn't happy about it.

"I told him that I didn't think he should speak for Leigh Bodden," Romeo Crennel said. "He should let Leigh Bodden speak for himself in that situation."

Kevin Goheen explains the late addition of A.J. Nicholson to the injury report is from a sore hamstring.

It's all about stopping the run; at least from Cleveland's perspective.
