The Ravens are relatively healthy going into Thursday's game and more than anything mentioned above Harbaugh's priority will be keeping it that way.
The loss of Suggs was a huge blow obviously, but the team's two biggest injury setbacks in training camp have been a likely season-ending ankle injury to reserve nose tackle Ryan McBean and the ongoing calf issues with reserve offensive tackle Jah Reid.
By Monday afternoon, the Ravens will have to trim their roster from 90 to 75. Then by next Friday, the day after their preseason finale in St. Louis, they'll need to get their roster down to the prerequisite 53. Harbaugh has long said that the Ravens will keep the best 53 players, and team officials are hoping that health concerns don't play a heavy role in their roster decisions.
"It's getting a little tense. Guys want to make this team," Harbaugh said. "Everybody can't be. If they can't be part of this, they want to be a part of a team somewhere in this league. So, it's time now, and they want to put good tape out there."
