Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs, who partially tore his right Achilles tendon in late April, has denied an ESPN report that he sustained the injury while playing basketball in Arizona. He claims the injury occurred during a conditioning drill. Either way, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said that at this point, the cause is “not relevant.”
“That's not a conversation we're even having,” Harbaugh said Wednesday at the team’s voluntary organized team activity. “It's not relevant to anything or has anything to do with what we're trying to accomplish. If it were I guess we'd think about it. The relevant conversation with Terrell Suggs is going to be rehab.”
Suggs will come on Monday to Baltimore so doctors can examine his surgically-repaired tendon. If the scar is fully healed, Suggs should be cleared to begin rehabbing the injury at the team’s facility.
