Harbaugh on if Suggs got hurt playing hoops: ‘It’s not relevant’

OWINGS MILLS — Reacting to reports that Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs tore his Achilles tendon playing basketball, Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh said it’s irrelevant to the situation.

"That’s not a conversation we’re even having," Harbaugh said. "It’s not relevant to anything that has to do with what we’re trying to accomplish. If it were, I guess we would think about it. The relevant conversation as far as Terrell Suggs is going to be rehab.

"He’s going to be back here next week. He’s got a doctor’s appointment on Monday if I’m not mistaken. He’s going to go to work get that thing back and knowing Terrell he’ll be back sooner rather than later."

Suggs has repeatedly denied that he got hurt playing basketball, telling 24×7 that he got hurt doing a conditioning drill.

Meanwhile, Harbaugh said he doesn’t plan on adding more outside linebackers following Michael McAdoo’s season-ending torn Achilles tendon injury.

"I don’t expect to do that," Harbaugh said. "It would it’s more who’s available player-wise. Our numbers are okay there. If a real good player became available, someone good enough to bring to camp, we’d look at it. We’re comfortable with the outside linebackers we have."

This marks the third year in a row that McAdoo will miss due to eligibility issues at North Carolina and being sidelined for his entire rookie season last year due to a knee injury.

"I’m disappointed for him," Harbaugh said. "You feel bad. Here’s a guy who’s done a good job he hasn’t played football in two years now it’s going to be three years.

"We’re not going to give up on him. It’s going to be a project for us. We’re disappointed for him."
