Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was forced to miss both games against the Baltimore Ravens last season due to injuries and Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs said Thursday he hopes Roethlisberger recovers quickly from his recent knee surgery.
“You know; it just isn’t the same game when the two teams don’t have all their parts playing,” Suggs told the NFL Network, when asked about Roethlisberger\’s recent minor knee surgery. “So you’re absolutely right, I do wish him well, and I hope for him to have a speedy recovery.”
Suggs, who is fresh off his trip to the White House to meet the president, said the final sentence while wearing an ear-to-ear smile, which certainly leaves his remarks open to him being sarcastic. However, since 2004, Suggs has sacked Roethlisberger 15.5 times, which is more than any other player during that span.
After starting out with a 9-3 career record against the Ravens, Roethlisberger has lost the last two games he\’s played against them. He\’ll have to wait until Week 7 this upcoming season to play Suggs and the Ravens with the second meeting between the two teams taking place Thanksgiving night in Baltimore.
