According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs expects to play in this week’s game against the Texans.
“Sources said that even Suggs’ family and friends have plans to travel to Houston in anticipation of watching him stage one of the quickest returns from this type of significant injury by any athlete,” Schefter wrote.
“Yes, that’s still the plan,” one source texted Thursday, per Schefter.
“Baltimore still wants to make sure there are no setbacks this week, especially Thursday, when Suggs returns to the training facility after his first day of practice since last season. Plus, Suggs appears to have added weight during his layoff that he may try to shed in coming weeks.
“Ravens coach John Harbaugh continually has declined to put a timetable on Suggs’ return, and many have believed it would be mid-November,” wrote Schefter.
Even though they lost last week, the Texans are still one of the best teams in the NFL. The Ravens could use a boost from Suggs, but I’m not sure how much of an impact he’ll be able to make after an extended offseason.
