Terrell Suggs On Sideline For Steelers Rivalry Game


Terrell Suggs couldn't resist the draw of his archrival Steelers.

The Ravens' defensive leader is on the sideline for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh at M&T Bank Stadium.

It's his first time back at the stadium – and first public appearance with the team – since tearing his Achilles in Week 1 in Denver.

Wide receiver Steve Smith Sr., running back Justin Forsett and other Ravens with season-ending injuries have returned to watch home games this season.

Suggs has been around the Under Armour Performance Center sporadically as teammates have tweeted pictures with him.

He is wearing a knitted cap with the number "92" on it, a likely shout-out to departed teammate and best friend Haloti Ngata. That's Ngata's former jersey number.

He made his first public comments since the injury to Ravens Senior Vice President of Public & Community Relations Kevin Byrne.

"Heartbreaking, just heartbreaking," Suggs said of watching his team. "It's like being in [the Batman movie villain] Bane's prison with your back broken, watching the city in turmoil."

And his take on rehabbing a second Achilles tear?

"Test of will," Suggs said.

After the Ravens' first defensive series, cornerback Jimmy Smith and safeties Will Hill and Kendrick Lewis talked with Suggs as he sat atop an equipment trunk. It appeared that they were talking about game strategy versus Suggs' long-time enemy, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
