Ravens veterans Terrell Suggs and Marshal Yanda not expected to play Sunday against the Jets

Ravens coach John Harbaugh confirmed that rush linebacker Terrell Suggs tore his left biceps against the New York Giants. He doesn't believe Suggs will be sidelined for an extensive amount of time, but he did acknowledge it's unlikely the rush linebacker plays Sunday against the New York Jets.

"He's played with that injury before, so he has a chance to come back soon," Harbaugh said of Suggs who leads the team with five sacks. "How soon remains to be determined. I'm not going to say anything for this week yet. I think this week will be tough for him, but I don't put anything on Terrell Suggs as impossible [with] his ability to overcome. So we'll see how that goes."

Suggs played with a torn biceps in his right arm in 2012. He indicated after the Giants' game that he planned on persevering through his latest ailment.

"Whatever it is, you know who I am and you know what I represent," Suggs said.

Harbaugh didn't offer specifics on the team's other injuries aside from saying it's also unlikely starting right guard Marshal Yanda plays against the Jets.

"Marshal Yanda will be a stretch also with his situation," Harbaugh said.

Yanda was one of six prominent Ravens who missed the Giants' game with injuries. That list also included wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. (ankle), left tackle Ronnie Stanley (foot), strong-side linebacker Elvis Dumervil (foot), inside linebacker C.J. Mosley (hamstring) and kick returner Devin Hester Sr. (thigh).

Cornerbacks Jimmy Smith (concussion) and Jerraud Powers (groin) also were forced out of the Giants' game in the first half because of injuries.
