Injury Watch: No Worry About Suggs


As camp is officially in full swing there is plenty for the coaching staff to worry about but I think the primary concern is to stay healthy.

With media outlets providing a plethora of coverage and writers tweeting every five minutes it becomes difficult to sort the minor injuries from those that are more serious. I’ll try my best to help.

Terrell Suggs, as you can see from above, (Nice O’s hat by the way) is in a protective boot due to a strained left heel. There seems to be little concern about it as Suggs is expected to be back in the next few days. Missing games because of injury has not been an issue with Suggs, who has played in every game of his six-year career but when you see a cast you have sense to question it.

Mark Clayton and Demetrius Williams both tweaked hamstrings causing a collective groan from most of the fan base. But these types of injuries are common with the heat and constant movement so the hope is they should be back full speed in a few days. Williams in fact has been playing through it at times. Since Clayton has had a history of hamstring problems the team will be extra careful.

Three others that have been down for a more extended period are Samari Rolle (groin and shoulder), Yamon Figurs (foot) and Adam Terry (arthroscopic knee surgery). All remain on the PUP list unable to practice. Figurs needs to find a way to jump into the receiver competition since he was stripped of his return duties he needs to use his speed to impress on the outside or he may be out of a roster spot.

Adam Terry is also recovering slowly from surgery, but Oniel Cousins has played very well in camp so far and may nab the backup Tackle spot if Terry is still on the mend.

L.J. Smith (hamstring), Davon Drew (right ankle) and Brendan Ayanbadejo (toe) are three others that have been out of practice.

Unfortunately the Tight End group seems to always find its way onto the injured list but fortunately Todd Heap’s name is not there. In fact Heap has looked strong in drills and is cutting well. That’s a good sign.
