The Ravens made a handful of cuts on Sunday to start trimming their roster in advance of Monday afternoon’s deadline and they announced a series of other roster machinations to get down to 75 men on Monday morning.
Ever since Terrell Suggs injured his Achilles this offseason, he’s vowed to make a return to the field this season and the Ravens have kept that possibility alive by placing him on the physically-unable-to-perform list. That means he’s free to start practicing after the Ravens have played six games. After six games, Suggs would have three weeks to start practicing and, if he does, another three weeks to hit the active roster or the 2011 Defensive Player of the Year will have to be released or placed on injured reserve.
The Ravens also placed wide receiver David Reed on the PUP list. He’s recovering from a torn ACL suffered in December.
Baltimore rounded out their moves by placing linebacker Stevie Baggs, linebacker Darryl Blackstock, safety Emanuel Cook, and defensive tackle Ryan McBean on injured reserve. The 2012 season is over for all of those players.
