Terrell Suggs Out Versus Redskins

Posted Dec 9, 2012

The Ravens will be thin at linebacker against the NFL's top rushing attack.

Sizzle didn't suit up for the Skins.

A week after suffering a right biceps injury, outside linebacker Terrell Suggs has been scratched for Sunday's game in Washington.

Suggs practiced in a limited capacity Thursday and Friday and was listed as questionable, giving hope that he might be able to play just a week after suffering a right biceps injury that was classified by Head Coach John Harbaugh as a "very serious strain" and perhaps a tear.

Suggs indicated that it was a matter of how much pain he could endure.

"If it's a possibility I can play, then I'm going to play," Suggs said Wednesday.

"I really believe if everything [works] out with how I am feeling, and we do a good job throughout the week, I will be lining up. If not, then I miss the Washington game and hopefully I can be back for the Denver one."

Suggs' absence is big for a Ravens defense that is also without inside linebacker Ray Lewis for at least one more game and ruled out inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (ankle).

It's the first time since Suggs entered the league in 2003 that neither he nor Lewis will be on the field.

The Ravens are facing the NFL's top rushing unit. Washington is averaging 167.2 rushing yards per game between quarterback Robert Griffin III and running back Alfred Morris.

Suggs would have also helped set the edge against Washington's complex option offense. Instead, Baltimore will likely rely on Albert McClellan, rookie Courtney Upshaw and Paul Kruger at outside linebacker.

Baltimore will also play without cornerback Jimmy Smith, who will now sit out a fifth straight game with a sports hernia injury. Smith practiced this week for the first time since suffering the injury, but was listed as doubtful.

That means Corey Graham will once again get the start outside at cornerback.

The Ravens are getting back cornerback Chris Johnson, who missed the past two games with a hamstring injury. The veteran was one of Baltimore's top three corners in Pittsburgh and caused a fumble in limited action before the injury.

Baltimore ruled out tight end Ed Dickson (knee) Friday and scratched wide receiver/return specialist Deonte Thompson, guard/tackle Ramon Harewood and defensive tackle Bryan Hall.

The Redskins' inactives are backup guards Josh LeRibeus and Adam Gettis, quarterback Rex Grossman, wide receiver and returner Brandon Banks, tackle Tom Compton, linebacker Roddrick Muckelroy and wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe.
