In dire need of help at linebacker, the Ravens will activate Terrell Suggs from the physically-unable-to-perform list Wednesday, according to CBS Sports' Jason LaCanfora.
Suggs, the NFL's 2011 Defensive Player of the Year, tore his Achilles in the offseason and has yet to practice with the team.
The Ravens lost Ray Lewis for the season with torn triceps in Sunday's 31-29 win vs. the Dallas Cowboys. They will have three weeks to determine if Suggs will be activated or placed on the injured list.
The injury to Lewis makes it likely that 2010 second-round draft pick Sergio Kindle isn't in danger of being released after all. Kindle played in Week 2's 24-23 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, getting his firs tackle of is career, but not since.
Coach John Harbaugh addressed Suggs' status with the team last week in detail. The Ravens play at the Houston Texans on Sunday and then have a bye week. Don't expect to see Suggs playing in Houston.
"We have the bye week, then two weeks after that or three weeks after that? His progress from between now and then is going to determine that. We don’t know that yet," Harbaugh said then. "So once he gets out there and starts practicing, then we’ll just have a better indication. Is it a possibility? Yes, because he’s eligible to come back then, and he looks pretty good right now. But he’s not going through any football workouts yet. He hasn’t been through a practice or anything like that yet. I don’t think you know until you see him practice.”
