The Ravens have activated linebacker Terrell Suggs for Sunday's game vs. the Houston Texans and finally parted ways with linebacker Sergio Kindle, who never lived up to his potential as a 2010 second-round draft pick, on Saturday.
Although Suggs, who was designated to practice from the physically-unable-to-perform list Wednesday, is on the 53-man roster this move doesn't guarantee that Suggs will play.
Coach John Harbaugh, who admitted Friday that the uncertainty can give his team an edge because it forces Houston to prepare for Suggs, still has to decide if he'll be active for Sunday's game. The Ravens had three weeks from the moment Suggs began practicing again to decide if they'd activate him and have a bye week after the Houston game.
Suggs said all week that it'll likely be a game-time decision whether or not he plays. He's coming off an Achilles tear in the offseason.
Kindle never could get up to speed after missing his entire rookie season with a head injury. He only played in one game this season vs. the Philadelphia Eagles and hadn't been active since. He was questionable to make the inital 53-man roster to start the season.
Without Ray Lewis, who is out for the season with a torn triceps, the Ravens are extremely thin at linebacker. They also have tackles Haloti Ngata and Ma'ake Kemoeatu with knee strains after last week's win vs. the Dallas Cowboys.
