Suggs, who injured his Achilles this offseason, is eligible to return to practice as soon as Wednesday.

The three-week window for Suggs to return to the practice field starts this week, and once he hits the practice field, another three-week window opens for the Ravens to decide if they will move him to the active roster or put him on season-ending injured reserve.

The club's thinking, as it stands now, is that the earliest Suggs could be game-ready is mid-November.

The team lost both linebacker Ray Lewis and cornerback Lardarius Webb for the season to respective triceps and anterior cruciate ligament injuries in Sunday's win.
