Because we are asked about it so frequently, it's probably worth mentioning again that nothing really has changed with injured linebacker Terrell Suggs. Suggs has declined pretty much all media requests since he spoke to reporters in June, saying that he has no plans to talk again until he's ready to play. Team officials have maintained throughout that Suggs is making good progress and Ravens coach John Harbaugh last Friday was as definitive as he's been on the subject, indicating that he expects Suggs will play this season. However, it remains far too early to discuss how healthy Suggs will be, what kind of shape that he'll be in and whether he'll be effective or not. Suggs will be on the physically unable to perform list through the Ravens' Oct.14 game against the Dallas Cowboys. Then, they'll have three more weeks after that to evaluate his progress and decide whether they're ready to place him on the active roster or on season-ending injured reserve. So the earliest I would suspect to see Suggs is Nov. 11 against the Oakland Raiders and I stress that would be the absolute earliest. But until he's back practicing and talking to the media, it's probably pointless to speculate how much he'll be able to help the Ravens for the stretch run.
