When last we left Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs, we were waiting to hear whether or not he got the go-ahead from doctors to try to play through the biceps tear he suffered in Sunday’s loss to the Steelers.
Coach John Harbaugh addressed that question at his meeting with the media on Wednesday and the answer is one that should make Ravens fans hoping to see Suggs on the field very happy. Harbaugh said that the injury is a partial tear that Suggs can play with in the coming weeks. He didn’t say that Suggs would be playing this week, but the fact that he could play is encouraging for the Baltimore defense. Suggs will meet with the media later on Wednesday.
That wasn’t the only news involving Ravens linebackers on Tuesday. Harbaugh also said that Ray Lewis will practice on Wednesday for the first time since he tore his triceps in October. Lewis was placed on injured reserve with the designation to return at the time and there’s been a lot of chatter out of Baltimore that he’ll be ready to make that return as soon as he’s eligible in Week 15.
The Ravens haven’t confirmed anything about Lewis’ return, but getting back on the practice field (which he’s been eligible to do for a week) is a big step in the right direction for the longtime Raven.
Suggs and Lewis have not been on the field for the same time for the Ravens this season.
