Ravens rush linebacker Terrell Suggs was granted a motion of continuance Monday on his pre-trial hearing stemming from his March arrest for driving on a suspended license.
Suggs' attorney, Craig Penrod, made the request because he had just recently received documents as part of the "discovery" phase, and needs an opportunity to review them as part of his investigation into the incident, he said. After today's continuance, the pre-trail conference was pushed back to Aug. 16.
Suggs, 33, was arrested on March 4 in Scottsdale, Ariz., and charged with driving on a suspended license and failing to notify after striking a fixture. Suggs pleaded not guilty on April 1.
The charges can result in six months of jail time, a $2,500 fine and three years of probation. However, they are typically handled with fines.
Suggs hasn't spoken publicly about the incident. He's required to rejoin his teammates for the mandatory minicamp, which will take place from June 14-16 at the Under Armour Performance Center.
The longest-tenured Raven continues to rehab a torn Achilles tendon injury he sustained late in the team's regular-season opening loss to the Denver Broncos. It was the second time in four years Suggs suffered that injury.
Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome and coach John Harbaugh have both said Suggs is making good progress in his recovery.
