OWINGS MILLS, Md. — A day after acknowledging he needed to find his limit in order to determine how effectively he can play with a torn biceps in his right arm, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs returned to the practice field on a limited basis on Thursday.
Wearing long sleeves, Suggs wasn’t wearing a noticeable harness or apparatus on his upper right arm as he went through agility drills with the defensive line during the portion of the workout open to media. The 30-year-old linebacker said Wednesday he considered himself to be a game-time decision for this week’s game against the Washington Redskins.
“You just have to find your limit,” Suggs said. “You have to find out when you can do and what you can’t do. Like I said, right now, I would tell you I feel good and I was definitely playing. It’s not always the case on a Sunday. You have to know what it is you can do.”
The fact that Suggs is back on the practice field so quickly speaks to his determination to play this week, but Thursday will be telling in determining how realistic of an option that will be. The five-time Pro Bowl selection will need to test his range of motion in pads, ability to wrap to make tackles, and how well he can engage with blockers at the line of scrimmage.
As a result, his work on Thursday might as well be viewed as a science experiment in addition to his first attempt to play through a serious injury. And it could potentially loom large in terms of not only his status against the Redskins but moving forward through the rest of the season.
Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (ankle) and tight end Ed Dickson (knee) were absent from practice once again as neither player as practiced since suffering their respective injuries in the Ravens’ Week 12 win at San Diego.
Cornerback Jimmy Smith (sports hernia surgery) and linebacker Ray Lewis (triceps surgery) were both practicing for the second straight day.
Wide receiver Jacoby Jones, safety Ed Reed, and cornerback Asa Jackson also practiced on a limited basis.
The Redskins upgraded cornerback DeAngelo Hall and offensive tackle Trent Williams to limited participants while linebacker London Fletcher missed his second straight practice this week.
