After getting a second opinion on his torn right biceps, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs is planning on rehabbing the injury rather than having surgery. Suggs tore the biceps late in the Ravens’ December 2nd home loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He sat out the following week’s game against the Washington Redskins and was also rested in the team’s regular-season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Its pretty remarkable that Suggs was able to play this year with any effectiveness after the he tore hist right Achilles last April, only to recover in time to miss the first six games of this past season. There’s been speculation that the Ravens may restructure his contract in order to sign quarterback Joe Flacco to a long-term deal.
The Cleveland Browns will be in attendance this week at the NFL Regional Combine in Berea, which will feature 40-plus other players who are college players not invited to this week’s NFL Scouting Combine, as well as NFL free agents who haven’t played recently.
According to Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, these combines are for the following kinds of players:
1. Were not invited to the national combine in Indianapolis
2. Have college experience who were eligible for a previous draft
3. Have some pro playing experience but have been out of the game for a while
Dawg Pound Daley thinks Steelers free agent receiver Mike Wallace is a legitimate possibility for the Browns, but Ravens FA quarterback Joe Flacco is nothing more than a pipe-dream.
