Suggs Comments on Injury

Sunday, Oct. 16

Suggs commented on the situation, per Downing: "We don't know. I ain't no doctor. We're going to get it looked at, but you know who I am and what I represent. I'm going to get it looked at and make sure everything is all right."

Suggs Struggling to Shake Injury Bug as Career Winds Down

This is another setback for Suggs, who suffered an Achilles tear in the 2015 season opener and missed the rest of the campaign. An Achilles injury limited him to eight games in 2012 as well, but he has appeared in all 16 games in 10 seasons.

When healthy, the six-time Pro Bowler is one of the best linebackers in the NFL. The 2011 Associated Press Defensive Player of the Year and 2003 Associated Press Defensive Rookie of the Year has also been one of the leaders of the Ravens defense for more than a decade.

He is athletic enough to drop back into coverage and shadow tight ends or running backs on passing downs but also has the speed off the edge to pressure quarterbacks. Suggs entered the 2016 season with 729 combined tackles, 106.5 sacks, seven interceptions, 27 forced fumbles and 12 fumble recoveries in his career.
