From what he is saying and from what Harbs is saying it seems like surgery is not in the picture.
If he tore his bicep muscle it would role up like a lampshade. Sounds like a pretty painful partial tear or bad strain. Either way doubt he plays Sunday. He should be shelved a few weeks minimum.
Suggs returned to practice today.
since its not a full tear he prob wont need surgury also, if its a strain or severe pull its not even partially torn.
Bottom line, is if he can be effective with the injury, play him on Sunday if not rest him for the last 3 games and give him an extra week to heal.
Plus, Suggs was a pending FA in 2007, when he only put up 5 sacks. He signed his long term deal in 2009. That's when he only put up 4.5 sacks, albeit in only 13 games.
So, he signed his new contract before the 2 years that you referenced as evidence of some sort of chemically-enhanced contract drive.
Suggs was always in good shape in his early years. He showed up in 2008 totally out of shape because he sat out all OTAs and most of TC because of the franchise tag. He partially did the same in 2009 until he signed his deal in July. He then, as NC said, got banged up in TC, so he wasn't in great shape then either and he later missed 3 games in the middle of the season (but, wait, that must have been due to HGH!)
Now, he looks like he did earlier in his career.
But, to humor your opinion, I have to ask, since your original (incorrect) premise was that he used HGH because of his pending contract situation, why then did he start after he got the fat contract?
And, if he was apparently inclined to use HGH, why didn't he use it during his contract drive - as you said - or even earlier in his career?
Band his numbers drop....
Bang all of the sudden he is ripped to shreds and is tearing it up....
Bang, starts tearing tendons like they are paper. Hell, he didn't even last a quarter of the season before he tears another tendon.
Yep, there is no circumstantial evidence he was using a substance the NFLPA refuses to test for and is known for causing tendon problems because it DOESN'T grow or help tendons recover, just muscles and organs.
Nope, nothing here to see at all.
I'll tell you that I partially tore my hamstring 5 weeks into a cycle. I was running again in 3 weeks. Juice does wonders for injuries.

Pro sports didn't ban hGH because it's bad for you. They did so because of the competitive advantage it gives an athlete.
There are numerous study's suggesting the benefits far out weigh the side effects when taken in moderation.
