Terrell Suggs reportedly tore his biceps but wants to play through it
Suggs played with a torn biceps for part of the 2012 season
Suggs had a serious knee injury in 2009, then played at a high level for two years before tearing his Achilles and biceps in 2012. He came back from those injuries to become a force once again, before tearing his Achilles for a second time in the 2015 season opener.
Suggs worked his way back from that injury and had recorded five sacks in the Ravens' first six games of this season before tearing his biceps during the Ravens' loss to the Giants on Sunday. According to a report from ESPN, the injury is not considered season-ending, and Suggs actually wants to play through it.
"We don't know," Suggs said, after being asked how serious the injury is. "I ain't no doctor. We're going to get it looked at, but you know who I am and what I represent. I'm going to get it looked at and make sure everything is all right."
After returning ahead of expectations from his torn biceps in 2012, Suggs recorded just two sacks in eight games. That pace of four sacks per 16-game season is far below his career average of 9.7 sacks per 16 games. It's reasonable to expect him to be adversely affected by the injury if he once again plays through this torn biceps, especially considering the injury issues elsewhere on the Baltimore defense.
