The Baltimore Ravens’ defense has struggled uncharacteristically this season, tumbling to No. 26 overall in the NFL. The team lost two key pieces of its defense this week, but regained another today.

Linebacker Terrell Suggs will be activated from the physically-unable-to-perform list and is expected to practice today, the Baltimore Sun’s Aaron Wilson reports. Suggs, the Defensive Player of the Year, had been out since tearing his Achilles tendon this spring. 

Although Suggs has maintained all along that he would play again this season, the Ravens intend to take a cautious approach, sources told Wilson. “I think we should just temper our expectations a little bit,” Coach John Harbaugh said.

Linebacker Ray Lewis was having surgery on his torn triceps today and the team announced that it was placing him on the injured reserve (designated for return) list. “We’re going to keep the door open,” Harbaugh said of the possibility that Lewis might be able to play again this season.

The Ravens also lost cornerback Lardarius Webb this week, to a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
