At least there's some encouraging news for the Ravens' defense. 

Three days after losing linebacker Ray Lewis to a triceps injury and cornerback Lardarius Webb to a season-ending knee injury, they activated star linebacker Terrell Suggs from the physically unable to perform list. 

Suggs had spent the first six weeks on the list after rehabbing from an off-season Achilles injury that required surgery. It wasn't a complete tear, so Suggs was able to return in time for this season. 

Activating him doesn't mean he's ready to play right away, though. The Ravens will take it slowly and monitor him closely in practice before deciding when he's ready to play again. 

Lewis, meanwhile, was placed on injured reserve, but he's eligible to return if he can make it back after undergoing surgery. Teams this year are allowed to designated one player on a long-term injured reserve list, which allows them to come back in the same season. Any other players on injured reserve must miss the rest of the season.
