Ravens' Suggs looking like player of old

A disappointment in 2009, OLB Terrell Suggs has recaptured the form that has made him one of the AFC's most feared pass-rush threats. Suggs has particularly been a force since the club's bye week, notching at least one sack in three consecutive games since Week Nine. Admittedly out of shape in '09, and missing three games because of a knee injury as well, Suggs was diligent in the offseason. Moreover, being reunited with Ted Monachino, his position coach at Arizona State and now the Ravens' OLB coach, has helped, too. The 6-3, 260-pound Suggs is strong and quick, a tough matchup for any tackle when he's on his game. One issue to watch going forward, however, is if anyone will emerge as a consistent complementary edge rusher to Suggs. The Ravens hoped rookie Sergio Kindle would aid in those efforts, but he is out for the season after suffering a fractured skull in July.
