Associated PressOWINGS MILLS, Md. ó As usual, Terrell Suggs is the focus of attention during Ravens-Steelers week. This time, his mouth isn’t the issue.
It’s a sprained right shoulder that just might keep him out of the AFC title game.
Instead of talking about bounties, his hatred of the Steelers or Baltimore’s plan to neutralize trash-talking receiver Hines Ward, the Ravens linebacker ditched his trademark grin as he discussed his ailing shoulder.
“This game is bigger than all that nonsense,” Suggs said, his voice barely above a whisper. “This game is 10 times bigger than cheap shots and playing with an injury or not playing with an injury. This game is that important. It’s so important that I would consider sitting out to win it.”Suggs got hurt tackling QB Kerry Collins last Saturday.
