Ravens' Terrell Suggs activated, will play Sunday vs. Texans

By Josh Katzowitz | NFL Writer

Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs has said since he partially tore his Achilles tendon last April that he would return to action sometime between mid-October and early November. While plenty of people scoffed at that proclamation, it looks like his prediction will come true after all.

The Ravens announced Saturday they have moved Suggs to the 53-man roster and have released linebacker Sergio Kindle. And according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, Suggs will play "some role" Sunday against the Texans.

Even with Suggs' preseason declaration, the move still is a bit surprising considering Baltimore has a bye in Week 8 and could have gotten an extra free week for Suggs to get healthier.

But with the season-ending injury to cornerback Lardarius Webb and the potential season-ending injury to linebacker Ray Lewis, the Ravens might have figured they needed to take a chance on activating Suggs.
