Return of Suggs isn't only answer for defense's questions

Terrell Suggs has played just one game since his rather rapid return from an Achilles tendon injury and surgery, and even he wants to make changes with the struggling defense.

But Suggs also knows that his return won't fix everything. When the Ravens have played their best, they've been effective in many areas. Teams had constant trouble running against the Ravens as well as passing. The Ravens caused trouble in so many ways, something that's not happening right now. Suggs is not the lone difference between that success and the current results. 

If a team relies so heavily on one player, the loss of that person can be catastrophic. Look what happened with the Bears and Jay Cutler and his injury. No one could really replace him in an efficient manner.

Last year, though, when the Ravens were making a playoff drive, they had to go without Ray Lewis for four games -- and won them all thanks to the inspired play of people like Suggs and Jameel McClain, among others.

That's the point Suggs was talking about. Turning around the Ravens' defense will involve a bunch of people, and though his return is going to help, everyone needs to play better.

"It’s not one man. It’s not the personnel," Suggs said. He continued that the Ravens need to execute their system and not panic, and the results would improve.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Roster spot questions begin

Kick off your Wednesday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. Chris Board is making a run for a starting spot at linebacker for the Ravens, according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec. Board and Kenny Young will reportedly make a run for the starting spot opposite Patrick Onwuasor, but Board is pulling ahead of the pack Zrebiec says. The spot is up for grabs since the Ravens lost C.J. Mosley in free agency.

2. Also looking to earn a roster spot is wide receiver, Jordan Lasley. After training during the offseason with Lamar Jackson, many expected Lasley to show up to minicamp ahead of the pack, but after making some drops, Zrebiec says Lasley "will need to pick up his game" if he wants to get a spot on the Ravens roster.


Looking Ahead:

July 15: 4 p.m. deadline to get a long-term deal done with designated franchise tag players.

According to Ravens media, Scott has been a big playmaker at OTAs and mandatory minicamp and is looking forward to the start of training camp. “I think I had a great practice to end minicamp, and now I’m going to get ready for the start of training camp,” Scott said to Ravens media. “I want to show people I can be a deep threat, that I can make big plays and do things in the red zone, help us score points. That’s my goal.”
