Suggs has been out since he had a surgery in May to repair his right Achilles tendon. He racked up a career total of 82.5 sacks with the Ravens, including 14 last season. This year, the team has accumulated only 10 sacks in 6 games without him. The Ravens need Suggs back on defense, especially after losing Ray Lewis to a torn triceps and Lardarius Webb to a torn ACL.
The reigning Defensive Player of the Year is on schedule for recovery, as he was expected to return to practice around late October or early November:
“He’s got his target date,” Harbaugh said in late September. “He’s doing well. The main thing we want to do now is make sure there’s no setback and he continues to get in shape and continues to get stronger.”
There’s no word yet on when Suggs will start in games.
