Harbaugh: How Suggs' Injury Occurred Not Relevant


Head Coach John Harbaugh said 'that's not a conversation that we're even having.'

When Terrell Suggs injured his Achilles tendon last month, the reports differed about how it occurred.

Some say it happened on the basketball court, while Suggs maintains that he suffered the injury during a conditioning test. ESPN's Adam Schefter released a report on Tuesday quoting employees at a gym in Arizona who said that they saw Suggs get injured during a basketball tournament at their facility.

For Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh, the debate about how the injury occurred is a fruitless.

"That's not a conversation that we're even having," Harbaugh said Wednesday after practice. "It's not relevant in anything that we're trying to accomplish. If it were, I guess we'd think about it."

Rather than worry about what Suggs was doing when he suffered the injury, Harbaugh's focus is making sure that Suggs gets healthy so he can return to the field as early as possible. Suggs is scheduled to be in Baltimore next week for a doctor's appointment, which will determine how he has progressed since having surgery.

Suggs has repeatedly said that he plans to return to the field this season and recently told The Baltimore Sun that he will be back by late-November at the latest.

"The relevant conversation as far as Terrell Suggs is going to be rehab," Harbaugh said. "He's going to go to work, get that thing back, and knowing Terrell, he'll be back sooner rather than later."
