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 (biceps) will be active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.
Suggs, who tore his biceps in Week 6, will make his return to game action Sunday as he figures to get the start at weakside linebacker. Za'Darius Smith would be in line for an increased workload if Suggs experiences any sort of setback.
