That report contends Suggs suffered the injury while playing basketball, as was initially reported before Suggs said that he got hurt doing a conditioning test. Suggs repeated that when asked about the new report, although the difference doesn’t matter all that much since the Ravens aren’t making any move to recover money from Suggs for suffering a non-football injury. On Wednesday, coach John Harbaugh made it clear that the team only cares about Suggs getting healthy.
“That’s not a conversation we’re even having,” Harbaugh said, via Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times. “It’s not relevant to anything that has to do with what we’re trying to accomplish. If it were, I guess we would think about it. The relevant conversation as far as Terrell Suggs is going to be rehab. He’s going to be back here next week. He’s got a doctor’s appointment on Monday if I’m not mistaken. He’s going to go to work get that thing back and, knowing Terrell, he’ll be back sooner rather than later.”
Harbaugh also addressed how they will fill in for Suggs, regardless of whether sooner or later wins that race. Harbaugh said he doesn’t anticipate the team adding an outside linebacker after losing Michael McAdoo to another torn Achilles.
