Ravens LB Suggs won't rule himself out for Sunday

Ravens LB Suggs won't rule himself out for Sunday

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs hasn't ruled out the possibility of making his season debut Sunday against the Houston Texans.

``There's no plan in place,'' Suggs said Thursday. ``I've got to take it day by day. Come Sunday I may or may not be out there.''"

The notion of Suggs playing in Houston seems far-fetched, given that he practiced for the first time Wednesday after undergoing surgery in May on his torn right Achilles tendon. The Ravens also have a bye next week, which would enable Suggs further time to test the injury and get into football shape.

``It's different between practicing and when the bullets are live,'' he acknowledged. ``You've just got to wait and see.''

Coach John Harbaugh was not available for comment, but he said previously the Ravens would not press Suggs back into action.

After refusing to put a percentage on the odds that he would play, Suggs added, ``We're just feeling it out, man. It's good to see me back out there but I don't want to jump the gun and rush back.''

But Suggs, 30, the 2011 NFL defensive player of the year and a five-time Pro Bowl star, simply couldn't bring himself to completely dismiss the notion of playing Sunday.

``I'm going to take it down to the last minute. Right now we're just feeling it out,'' he said.

The last thing Suggs needs is to burst through the tunnel in Houston, start against the Texans and reinjure himself.

``That's always a concern,'' he said. ``That's why I've got the people around me that I trust. We're going to make the decision as a group, whether it would be better for me to sit out or suit up.''

Suggs shot down a report that members of his family were making the trip to Houston to watch him play.

This much is certain: he has no desire to watch another game from the sideline.

``It's been miserable," Suggs said. ``It's like being a kid who can't go out and play. You see all your friends out and you're stuck in the house.''

Ravens lower concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium ahead of 2018 season

Enjoying a game at M&T Bank Stadium just became a little more affordable.

On Thursday, the Ravens introduced their new "Flock Friendly Fare," reducing the price of 21 of their most popular food and beverage items.  

The change comes as the organization focuses on revamping the fan experience in 2018. Fans will see an average of 33 percent in total savings and up to 53 percent savings on a single item.  

"As a lot of you probably know, after every game we survey fans to see how we're doing; what have we done well and what have we not done well. Over the years, one of the biggest criticisms we received was for the gameday concessions prices," Ravens President Dick Cass said on the team's website

Alcoholic beverages were all reduced by $1 with the addition of domestic 12 ounce beer for $5.

Chicken tenders with fries went from $11 to $7, while a slice of pizza went from $8.50 to $6. No single item will cost above $9.

On average, you will now be able to feed a family of four for $44 compared to $66.75 in years past. To see all of the reductions, click the arrow in the post below. 

In 2017, the Atlanta Falcons reduced their concession prices upon opening their brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Ravens, however, are expecting to lose $1.5 million in concession revenue due to the change.

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas has spoken and they are not optimistic about rookie Lamar Jackson starting under center for the Ravens in 2018.

Bovado, an online gambling site, has set the odds on how the top 2018 rookies will perform and they have Jackson getting 0.5 starts this season.

That number will come as a surprise considering the popular narrative that Lamar Jackson will be the Ravens' starter in no time. The team made it clear they are planning for life after Flacco when they traded back into the first-round of the 2018 draft to select the quarterback out of Louisville at No. 32

Flacco - who is entering his 11th season with the organization - is experiencing a decline in his performance of late, one that can not be put entirely on his shoulders as the team has failed in finding him valuable weapons to throw to. Nonetheless, Flacco's projected 2018 season is very much up in the air and it appears Vegas is betting on the one-time Super Bowl MVP to bounce back. 

However, the Ravens have failed to make the playoffs four of the last five seasons, and if that trend continues into 2018, the rookie could get his shot at flipping the script.

If you're a betting man, it could payoff to bet the over on Jackson. Low risk, seemingly high reward.
