Suggs active; Kindle cut


Suggs active; Kindle cut

The Ravens have activated linebacker Terrell Suggs for Sunday's game vs. the Houston Texans and finally parted ways with linebacker Sergio Kindle, who never lived up to his potential as a 2010 second-round draft pick, on Saturday.

Although Suggs, who was designated to practice from the physically-unable-to-perform list Wednesday, is on the 53-man roster this move doesn't guarantee that Suggs will play.

Coach John Harbaugh, who admitted Friday that the uncertainty can give his team an edge because it forces Houston to prepare for Suggs, still has to decide if he'll be active for Sunday's game. The Ravens had three weeks from the moment Suggs began practicing again to decide if they'd activate him and have a bye week after the Houston game.

Suggs said all week that it'll likely be a game-time decision whether or not he plays. He's coming off an Achilles tear in the offseason.

Kindle never could get up to speed after missing his entire rookie season with a head injury. He only played in one game this season vs. the Philadelphia Eagles and hadn't been active since. He was questionable to make the inital 53-man roster to start the season.

Without Ray Lewis, who is out for the season with a torn triceps, the Ravens are extremely thin at linebacker. They also have tackles Haloti Ngata and Ma'ake Kemoeatu with knee strains after last week's win vs. the Dallas Cowboys.

Fellow dance student of Ravens' Alex Collins fatally shot in Florida school shooting

Fellow dance student of Ravens' Alex Collins fatally shot in Florida school shooting

On Wednesday, February 14, a horrific school shooting claimed the lives of 17 innocent people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. 

The tragic event impacted people far and wide, and hit especially close to home for Ravens running back Alex Collins.

The former Arkansas star was born in Plantation, Fla., a suburb of Fort Lauderdale and went to high school just 15 miles south of Douglas High School. 

In the offseason, Collins took Irish dancing lessons to improve his footwork, and following the act of terror, the Ravens' tailback learned that one of his dance partners had been killed in the mass shooting.

17-year-old Cara Loughran attended The Drake school of Irish Dance with Collins in addition to two other Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students and was fatally shot by the gunman on Wednesday afternoon. 

Collins took to his Twitter account to issue this heartfelt message.


“The school shooting yesterday hit home,” Collins wrote.

“We received confirmation a few hours ago we lost one of the girls, Cara Loughran. Two other girls saw and experienced unspeakable tragedy. My heart goes out to these girls, all their families and their teacher Chrissy.”

Baltimore Ravens to take on Chicago Bears in Hall of Fame game

BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Ravens and Chicago Bears will launch the NFL's 99th season by playing in the annual Hall of Fame game on Aug. 2.

The Ravens' first appearance in the Hall of Fame game, which launches the league's 2018 Enshrinement Week. Former Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis is among the inductees, along with former Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher.

Lewis, who played 17 seasons with the Ravens, and Urlacher, who played all of his 13 seasons with Chicago, both were elected on the first ballot.

Lewis joins Jonathan Ogden as the only Ravens in the Hall of Fame. Both were selected by Baltimore in the first round of the 1996 draft.

The other members of the Class of 2018 include Bobby Beathard, Robert Brazile, Brian Dawkins, Jerry Kramer, Randy Moss and Terrell Owens. All will be inducted on Saturday, Aug. 4.

This will be the record-tying fifth time that the Bears will play in the Hall of Fame game. They won the previous four, most recently 27-24 over Miami in 2005.
