Suggs saves emotions for Steelers


Sunday's game carries an extra importance for the Ravens.

It'll be the first time their fans will get to see linebacker Terrell Suggs to play this season.

Suggs, who recently returned from the physicially-unable-to-perform list because of a torn Achilles, has had two starts.

Both were on the road as Baltimore went 1-1. There was the 43-13 loss to the Houston Texans and last week's 25-15 win vs. the Cleveland Browns.

The Raiders (3-5) come to down this weekend, possibly without running backs Darren McFadden (ankle) and Mike Goodson (ankle).

"It's going to be weird playing at M and T (Bank Stadium), but it's where I belong," said Suggs, who practiced for less than a week before returning to the field. "In rehab and in the training room is not where I belong. … I just can't wait to get out there and start playing for them again.

But don't expect Suggs to come out of the tunnel for introductions Sunday to rile up the home crowd where the Ravens have won 14 consecutive games.

Suggs would rather the offense and 5-foot-8 running back Ray Rice get announced, as scheduled. He can wait for a special home game for that moment.

"I'm going to knid of let it stay as it lies because there is a certain home game coming up that we might want the defense to get called out for," said Suggs, alluding to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Dec. 2. "That's pretty much coach's call. It's all in fun. We have enough marquee offensive guys that the crowd can still get into, especially with 'Mighty Mouse.'

After Sunday's game with the Raiders, the Raven's next two games are on the road at the San Diego Chargers and at the Steelers.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: What to look out for at OTAs

Kick off your Thursday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news including what to watch for at OTAs.

Player/Team Notes: 

1. As the Ravens try and bolster their pass rush during the offseason, they hope to find much-needed help from outside linebacker, Shane Ray. The Ravens picked up Ray from the Denver Broncos where he had an unproductive last two seasons due to injury, only registering one sack in each of the past two seasons. However, Ray had a phenomenal career at Missouri as a unanimous All-American and SEC Defensive Player of the Year in 2014. The Ravens have given Ray a shot at a career reboot and fans are excited to see what he's got.

2. Thursday is the media's first opportunity to get a look at the 2019-20 Ravens. Ravens writer Ryan Mink writes seven things to look out for at OTAs including, attendance from veterans even though OTAs are mandatory, a look at linebacker development with the signings of namely Pernell McPhee and Shane Ray and a first look at the rookie class to name a few.

Looking Ahead:

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

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Ravens rank higher than expected in preseason rankings

Kick off your Wednesday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news including a high preseason ranking for the Ravens.

Player/Team Notes: 

1. The Ravens ranked higher than expected in Peter King's preseason rankings. King ranked the Ravens at No. 12, surprising for a defense that is working on development during this offseason. However, with the Ravens' signing of All-Pro safety Earl Thomas, maybe he will bring the fire the Ravens need on defense.

2. With day 2 of OTAs in the books, the focus has been on quarterback Lamar Jackson. Ravens writer, Kevin Eck noted that during the offseason, Jackson had been working out with Ravens quarterbacks coach, Joshua Harris along with receivers Jordan Lasley and Jaylen Smith, so it remains to be seen throughout the summer on whether or not he has improved namely his passing game. 

Looking Ahead:

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