Baltimore Ravens vs Pittsburgh Steelers: Linebacker Terrell Suggs on sideline for first time since injury

New, comment

A frequent question brought up is the absence of Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs since his injury way back in week one. The 33-year old linebacker tore his Achilles tendon for the second time in his career during the Ravens week one matchup against the Denver Broncos. Well not any more! Suggs couldn't resist the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens rivalry and is sitting on the sideline helping pump up the players and fans in the stands.

A frequent question brought up is the absence of Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs since his injury way back in week one. The 33-year old linebacker tore his Achilles tendon for the second time in his career during the Ravens week one matchup against the Denver Broncos. Well not any more! Suggs couldn't resist the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens rivalry and is sitting on the sideline helping pump up the players and fans in the stands.

The loss of Terrell Suggs has been felt ever since that game, with Baltimore's defense having trouble pressuring the quarterback and subsequently allowing the secondary to be victimized. Not only have the Ravens felt Suggs' absence on the field, but with his leadership ability as well, having the now young Ravens roster struggle to match the intensity of previous years.

With a lot of black and gold in the stands this week, the team would need the remaining Ravens fans at the stadium to be extra loud. With a fast start for Ryan Mallett and the team, Suggs' helping on the sideline has pushed the stadium to be rather loud at moments and on the Ravens side. Hopefully it means a Ravens win and knocking the Steelers out of the playoffs with a sweep of the series.
