Ravens LB Suggs to miss first career game with knee injury

The Baltimore Ravens will play Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts without linebacker Terrell Suggs, who needs more time to take care of his injured knee, further diminishing the team’s chance of winning over one of the only two unbeaten teams in the league.

According to Ravens Coach John Harbaugh, Suggs has a sprained ligament in his right knee after being injured on an illegal chop block by the Cleveland Browns quarterback Brady Quinn following an interception by the Ravens Monday night in Baltimore’s 16-0 win. The block did not only cause Quinn to be fined an undisclosed amount, but also caused Suggs, the three-time Pro Bowler, to miss his first NFL game since putting on Ravens jersey seven years ago.

That brought an end to Suggs’ streak of 105 played games, and now he may miss more than just one game, meaning the Ravens may have to use rookie Paul Kruger for the next few games. No wonder Harbaugh has said he was “disappointed” with Quinn’s block and that “there was no reason” for it.
