Bengals hold off Ravens…Big Ben sits out practice again…Mariota has limited workout

CINCINNATI (AP) – AJ Green grabbed touchdown passes on three consecutive series and the Cincinnati Bengals improved to 2-0 by defeating the 1-1 Baltimore Ravens, 34-23. Andy Dalton finished with 265 passing yards and threw all four of his touchdown passes while the Bengals were building a 28-7 lead. Joe Flacco threw for 376 yards and two scores, but much of the yardage came after Cincinnati built a 21-point lead.

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger skipped practice for a second straight day due to an issue with his right elbow. The 36-year-old Roethlisberger injured the elbow on Pittsburgh’s next-to-last offensive snap in a Week 1 tie with Cleveland. Offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner declined to get into specifics about Roethlisberger’s status for Sunday.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Tennessee Titans limited Marcus Mariota at practice Thursday and gave more work to backup Blaine Gabbert in preparation for Sunday’s game against Houston. Coach Mike Vrabel says they want to evaluate which quarterback will give them the best chance against the Texans. Mariota practiced fully yesterday after an injured elbow knocked him out of Tennessee’s 27-20 opening loss in Miami.

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) – The San Jose Sharks have bolstered their blueline by acquiring two-time Norris Trophy winner Erik Karlsson from the Ottawa Senators for a package of young players and several high draft picks. The Sharks also received forward Francis Perron and sent forwards Chris Tierney, Josh Norris and Rudolfs Balcers to Ottawa, along with defenseman Dylan DeMelo. The Senators also get a first-round pick in 2019 or 2020, a second-round pick next year and two conditional selections, but San Jose will also send Ottawa a second-rounder in 2021 if Karlsson re-signs with the Sharks.

NEW YORK (AP) – The New York Mets say third baseman David Wright will be activated Sept. 25 against Atlanta and is scheduled to start Sept. 29 versus the Marlins. It’s expected to be the final game of his career after dealing with a litany of neck, back and shoulder injuries that have required surgery. Wright is ranked either first or second in every major offensive category on the team’s all-time list, but he hasn’t played a major league game since May 2016.
