Report: Suggs To Come Off PUP This Week


Terrell Suggs will reportedly get back on the practice field this week.

The Ravens will activate the reigning Defensive Player of the Year from the physically unable to perform (PUP) list this week, allowing him to return to practice for the first time this season, according to The Baltimore Sun.

Suggs will only participate on an "extremely limited basis," the Sun reported, and his return to game action will likely be sometime next month. An unnamed source told The Sun that Suggs is more likely to return in mid-to-late November.

Head Coach John Harbaugh told the media on Monday that the team would decide on Wednesday whether Suggs would practice this week. The outside linebacker suffered an Achilles tendon injury in late April, and has been rehabbing at the team's facility since training camp in July.

"We'll just have to see where we're at then and see how he is doing," Harbaugh said.

By activating Suggs from the PUP list, the Ravens will then have a three-week window to decide whether to put him on the active roster or place him on injured reserve. If the Ravens decide to activate him this week, then they could make room on the 53-man roster by moving Ray Lewis or Lardariuis Webb to injured reserve.

Getting Suggs back in uniform could provide a much-needed boost for the Ravens after Lewis and Webb both were lost for the season in Sunday's win over the Cowboys. Suggs led the Ravens with 14 sacks last season, and could help solidify a defense that is currently ranked 26th in the NFL.
