Suggs could return to practice this week

The Ravens got plenty of bad news from an injury standpoint on Sunday, with linebacker Ray Lewis (triceps) possibly lost for the season, cornerback Lardarius Webb (ACL) possibly lost for the season, and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (knee) possibly gone for a week or two.  But the 5-1 AFC North leaders could get some much-needed good news this week.

During one of the various web videos Peter King and yours truly record early in the second half of the Sunday night game, King said that linebacker Terrell Suggs possibly will return to practice this week.

He’s on the reserve/non-football injury list, which requires him to miss the first six weeks of the season.  Since Week Six will conclude tonight, a three-week window will open for Suggs and all other players on the NFI list or the Physically Unable to Perform list to return to practice.

If/when Suggs returns to practice, another three-week window will open, during which he either must be elevated to the active roster or placed on a season-ending reserve list.

Conflicting reports have emerged regarding the date on which Suggs will be able to play.  With Lewis and Webb both possibly done for the season, the sooner the Ravens get the 2011 NFL defensive player of the year back, the better.

    No to rush it Suggsie. Turns out the Texans were just paper champions.

    I guess that stretch without Sugar Ray last year with McClain at the helm was a good thing. It shows that the team is equipped to live up to the ”next man up” mantra.

    Webbs’ loss is a disaster. Those other young corners just aren’t ready to perform consistently.

    This may be the saddest win in franchise history.

    Frank Walker or Fabian Washington STILL better not get a call from us. Damn injury bug SMH

    Achilles injuries are never quick to heal, especially when you’re a 230-250 lb linebacker exerting maximum force. If Suggs were smart he’d sit the rest of this year out…should his Achilles completely rupture he’ll miss most of NEXT year too.

    Hahaha this is gonna get good. Can’t wait to see this. Steelers gonna whoop that a**

    and if he doesn’t reinjure the Achilles, he may return to form by the end of the season. He had a serious injury and hasn’t practiced or played a down since how long ? And suddenly he’s going to be the same as the last time he played ? Keep dreaming…….

    Steelersownyou, your pathetic attempts to try and convince yourself your team is still relevant is humorous at best. Ravens are on top of the AFCN with a commanding lead. Fall back in line now little boy.

    @stealersfannot If you think the Texans are Paper Champs we will see Next week in Houston what the Ravens can do without Suggs,Ray Lewis, and your best cornerback L.Webb ..And I thought we had it bad with Cushing out for the year.. Just remember The Texans are the Best team in Texas ..If Mr.Foster & Tate can run for 200 yards on the ground this won’t be a game.. From a Paper Champ Fan..Have a great season!! Go Paper Champs !!! lol

    Ravenator, see me at the end of the season. Not after 6 games. Im sure it wont work outfor your pathetic squad. Ive watched them play. Im super uninpressed at best!!!

  10. mostlombardisintheleague says: Oct 15, 2012 10:47 AM

    Ravens defense gave up over 400 yards (yes over 400 yards!!) rushing in the last two games – and that was with Webb and Lewis in the field. The “paper” Texans almost beat you in the playoffs last year with a 3rd string QB, next week the “paper” running backs are going to embarrass the swiss cheese Ravens defense even worse. They’ve been exposed for what they are – over-the-hill and overrated and over-injured. Ravens Sunday’s of squeeking out wins against average teams are done.

    Ravens will be lucky to go 8-8 this year. Everyone already knew they can be run on, now without Webb QB’s will be licking their chops. Can’t wait to hear all the excuses after the season why the Ravens failed once again to get to the Super Bowl.

    Lewis = Done
    Webb = Done
    Suggs = Won’t be a factor on one leg
    Window = Closed

    Lol Ravenator, quit trying to convince yourself that the Ravens are as good as their record suggests. Luck only carries you so far, and even your dumb ass cant downplay the significance of Lewis and Webb going down.

  13. ravenator says: Oct 15, 2012 11:21 AM

    And when they keep winning what will your excuse be?

    So the Ravens would be, in your own words, “lucky” to win three more games the rest of the season? Do you really think the Steelers, with all their injuries and issues, will beat the Ravens twice? Do you truly believe that their only wins the rest of the way will be against the likes of Cleveland, Washington, and Oakland?

    I certainly expect the Ravens to be pasted this weekend in Houston. But I also don’t think it’s crazy to think they’ll still manage to win double-digit games this year, and even secure one of the top two playoff spots come January. They’ve already got a two-game edge over New England in addition to beating them head-to-head, and Denver and San Diego are mediocre teams. Who else steps up in the AFC?

    Ravens should be 2-3 right now. Yes, I do believe the Ravens will go 3-6 AFTER they get blasted by the Texans this week. Even if they go 9-7 or 10-6 they will lose in the first round of the playoffs. They are good at that (losing in the playoffs). No defense.

    Doesn’t matter what you think their record “should” be right now. Their record is 5-1. End of story.

    (Besides, your comments already reflect a rather slanted view to begin with.)

    The Ravens offense has shown they can now concentrate more on outscoring their opponents, versus scoring merely enough so the defense can control the flow of the game otherwise. I’m not saying they’re invincible or anything, but they will still win a bunch more games than they lose the rest of the way. That’s what good teams do – they overcome injuries and issues within the team.
