Ravens' John Harbaugh: Terrell Suggs not defined by sacks

Friday September 19th, 2014

Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh said linebacker Terrell Suggs is playing well despite not having any sacks this season, ESPN's Jamison Hensley reports.

Suggs, 31, recorded 94.5 sacks during his first 11 seasons and had 10.0 last season. Harbaugh said his impact on the game can't be solely measured by sacks.

"Anybody who knows anything about football who watches the tape will tell you he’s playing really, really well," Harbaugh said. "He was very disruptive in his pass rush. Not just that, he’s playing great in the run game. I’d say all around his game is an A-plus."

As a team, the Ravens are tied for 27th in the league with 2.0 sacks. Baltimore has allowed 340.5 yards per game during its 1-1 start to the season and ranks 14th in total defense.

The Ravens will play their third divisional game of the season this Sunday when they play the Browns in Cleveland.
