"My Achilles started acting up, and it felt pretty bad, but I was like, '(Expletive) that,' " Suggs said after the win. "I wasn't going to let a repaired tendon steal our glory. We had work to do. We're trying to win a championship. And we had to make sure we did this for him."
Along with Suggs, linebacker Dannell Ellerbe suffered a sprained right ankle in the fourth quarter, but he downplayed the injury after the game.
"Yeah, I'll be fine. It's not that bad," Ellerbe told The Baltimore Sun. "At first, it was hurting. I walked it off."
Ellerbe has endured a string of injuries this season, including a broken and sprained thumb, a damaged left foot and Sunday's right ankle tweak. With the stakes against Denver sky high, we expect both defenders to be ready to go this weekend.
