Speaking for the first time since getting hurt, linebacker-defensive end Terrell Suggs said his sprained right knee isn’t a season-ending injury.
“There is no doubt in my mind that I should be back this year,” Suggs said. “That’s the plan. That’s where I’m at with it.”
Suggs was injured in Monday’s 16-0 win at Cleveland when Browns quarterback Brady Quinn hit Suggs’ knee on an interception return.
The three-time Pro Bowl player said he hasn’t seen the hit, but players have told him that it was a dirty hit.
“That’s exactly what it felt like,” he said. “But I haven’t seen it so I can’t really say one way or another. I’m more upset that I’m going to miss this game. I’ve got to get back for that rivalry.”
Suggs seemed disappointed that Quinn only received a $10,000 fine from the NFL.
“If I wouldn’t have gotten the same fine, then it’s definitely not fair,” Suggs said. “But he’s a quarterback and I’m a linebacker. That’s just the world we live in. If they were to say that it was the other way around, then you can say it’s fair.”
