Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs will opt to rehab the injury to his arm rather than have surgery, The Baltimore Sun’s Jeff Zrebiec reported on Thursday.
Suggs made the decision after getting a second opinion recently on the arm injury, a torn right biceps he suffered on Dec. 2 in a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He sat out of the Ravens’ last two regular-season games but helped guide the team to a Super Bowl XLVII championship earlier this month.
The 30-year-old Suggs also missed the first six games of the regular season while rehabbing and recovering from a torn Achilles. He came back and played in eight games, putting up 22 tackles and two sacks in eight games.
Suggs shone in the Ravens’ AFC Divisional Playoff upset of the Denver Broncos on the road. He sacked Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning twice, forced a fumble, and had 10 tackles.
Suggs was the 2011 NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
