Suggs picked up his fourth sack of the season Sunday against the Raiders.
The veteran edge rusher played an impressive 79 percent of Baltimore's defensive snaps Sunday and finished the day with four tackles. He also beat Pro Bowl left tackle Donald Penn for a sack and showed some athleticism in the process. Suggs is no longer among the league's elite in terms of getting to the quarterback, but he's still an impactful player when healthy.
Suggs recorded one tackle, one sack and one forced fumble in Sunday's win over the Browns.
Suggs now has three sacks on the year and is showing flashbacks to a younger self as he continues to wreak havoc on opponent's offensive lines. The 34-year-old veteran managed to log 49 defensive snaps (69 percent), placing him third on the Ravens' linebacking corps.
Suggs had six tackles and two sacks in Sunday's win over the Bengals.
The veteran played 49 of a possible 61 snaps on Sunday, according to Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun, placing him second behind Matthew Judon among all Ravens outside linebackers. Suggs held up well and made an impact in pass rush, racking up two sacks. He registered eight sacks last season after suffering an Achiles injury that held him to just one game in 2015. Even though Suggs is 34 years old now, he's shown that he can still be effective when healthy.
Suggs informed the media Wednesday that he underwent offseason surgery on his elbow to clean up some bone chips, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Suggs stated he is "fine and ready to go," so there doesn't appear to be any cause for concern regarding the issue. The veteran tough guy played through a torn biceps from Week 6 on in 2016, recording 35 tackles, including eight sacks, and three forced fumbles on the year. He's on track to start the year healthy and projects to start at weakside linebacker in Week 1.
Suggs played with a torn biceps from Week 6 on in 2016, not to mention a vague elbow ailment he apparently had to deal with as well. He's scheduled for offseason surgery to correct the bicep issue, and there doesn't appear to be any concern that either injury will impact his availability for the start of the 2017 campaign. Still, it remains to be seen how extensive a role Suggs may have entering his 15th season in the league.
