Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs is trying to play through a torn biceps he suffered a couple of weeks ago, but he wasn’t able to answer the bell for last Sunday’s game against the Redskins.
It’s unclear whether he’ll be on the field against the Broncos this weekend. Suggs said Thursday that he’s feeling better this week and he’s been a full participant in practice, but the decision about whether or not he’ll play in Week 15 should go down to the last minute one again.
“It was a must-win game [and] I thought I’d hinder the team by playing last week. But I feel good this week and we’ll just have to see come Sunday,” Suggs said, via the Baltimore Sun. “If I’m able to play, I’ll be pretty anxious. But it all comes down to how it feels on Sunday.”
The Ravens are going to have plenty of decisions to make on the defensive side of the ball before kickoff. Linebacker Ray Lewis is eligible to come off of injured reserve, although the Ravens haven’t given any indication about whether that will happen for the Denver game. Linebacker Dannell Ellerbee, defensive end Pernell McPhee, defensive end Arthur Jones and safety Bernard Pollard are also dealing with injuries this week, which isn’t exactly where you want to find yourself with Peyton Manning and the Broncos offense looming on the horizon.
