The Ravens defense has obviously been missing its sizzle.
But they still believe they’re getting T-Sizzle back.
“He is going to be back,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said, insisting outside linebacker Terrell Suggs will be back this year after injuring his Achilles in April.
“He has his target date,” Harbaugh said, via the team’s official website, without sharing the specific date. “He is doing well. The main thing we want to do now is make sure there is no setback, and he continues to get in shape and continues to get stronger.”
Suggs is on the physically unable to perform list, and would be eligible to return as soon as Week Seven.
Harbaugh said Suggs has been in every meeting, but will need conditioning work
“Football shape will be a factor,” Harbaugh said. “As soon as he gets on the field, it’s not like he is going to be back to Defensive Player of the Year form. We need to all understand that. Just give him a little space and let him kind of grow into this thing.”
With the way the Ravens offense has been playing, adding any degree of Suggs back in at any point this season will make them legitimate Super Bowl contenders, if they weren’t already.
