    Like someone said, the team really does not care. They are smart enough to realize that whatever TSizzle does in the offseason works for him very well. If he were say out driving a motorcycle without a helmet, they might take exception to that, they wont however discourage these guys from staying in shape by taking advantage of the injury to save a few bucks. That would make them the Bengals lol

    Repetitive motion type injury.

    It's something you see similar to runners injuries. The same motion over time tears down the tendons and surrounding muscle until they finally give out.

    Re: Was Suggs really playing basketball, after all?

    I don't have any idea of how much/many cortisone treatments he has had.
    Recommended for you or me is 3 in a lifetime (to an area), but professional athletes may get more.
    One side effect is a thinning of the surrounding muscle. Haven't really deeply read research on it, but when I first learned it, suddenly things like baseball pitchers torn muscles made more sense.

    Not sure of the specific point HoustonRaven was making, but, I can add that cortisone shot damage builds over time.
    And never quite sure when the "rope is going to fray or break", just that there is an accumulation.
    There is also suggestion that cortisone alters the smoothness of the bone surface (fine grade sandpaper effect), and possibly leaves small crystals behind. But you can't totally prevent the possibility of a tear, all you can do is restrict things that cause undue stresses, like Alpine skiing or bull wrestling. Basketball has very similar movements to football, I can't see it banned.

    Does not matter how he got hurt, get well soon Mr Suggs, there are QBs that need an a## whipping and running backs who need to be hit hard. Show everyone what you're made of and letys see you on the the field sooner then later.

    It's easy to say that pickup basketball is harmless, unless you're the one on the hook for paying a $62 million contract! A freak injury can happen anytime, but I can see why if a team has that much money invested in a single player, they are rigid about what activities that player can partake in away from the field/facility. Someone making the league minimum?...not so much.

    I'll still be rocking my Sizzle jersey this season as he recovers, and hopefully it is a quick one!

    Oh ok. I know nothing about the injury but from what I heard on the radio and someone has told me that its pretty tough to come back from right away. I can't help but to think when they said Nolan Reimold of the Orioles may be done for his career but he came back after this same injury.

    I guess time will tell. Hopefully Suggs can get himself right before long.

    Honestly, I care more about Suggs desire to play this season than I do what he was doing when he got hurt. I'll be beyond blown if he misses half of this season, still comes back to soon, injures it worse and puts next season in jeopardy. I really hope the Ravens shut him down and leave him there.

    To me a non story. it is a way tostay in shape. A certain SS who played a whole lot of games in a row played a lot of basketball. He even has a gym in his house. It happens, nothing to complain about IMO.

    Re: Was Suggs really playing basketball, after all?

    Mike B put the finger on it. An athlete playing sports in the off-season should hardly be considered a dangerous activity. Now other shit like motorcycle w/o helmet etc should be considered out of bounds (no pun) IMO. I was surprised by the ESPN article only because of the timing. I never thought the Ravens would go after Sizzle for $, they simply don't roll like that.

    The Ravens are a class act.....always have been. Nothing to see here folks.

    Things happen.

    Prohibiting a player from playing basketball in the off season makes as much sense as prohibiting a player from using the stairs in the middle of the night.

    Re: Was Suggs really playing basketball, after all?

    This is a non-story. A first class organization with a first class state of the art training facility that includes a basketball court won't withold any money from Suggs regardless of this latest revelation.

    Re: Was Suggs really playing basketball, after all?

    I agree that this is a non-story. Accidents happen. At least he was doing something active and he wasn't crashing a motorcycle in a parking lot being a dumbass on it or something.

    All the Ravens care about is getting him healthy and trying to get him out on the field this year.

    PFT seems to. They kept on printing how the Ravens could take away money from Suggs if they wanted to when clearly they never would.

    Re: Was Suggs really playing basketball, after all?

    Couldn't care less. And I understand if he tried to keep it quiet, since the media and some ppl would (and are) being stupid about it. It's not like he was doing something crazy like basejumping or cave diving.
