The Ravens are taking a cautious approach with the Defensive Player of the Year, according to team and league sources.
Suggs remains on the physically unable to perform list, but can be activated any time between now and the first week of November.
"We haven't decided that yet," Harbaugh said. "We'll make that decision obviously by Wednesday and we'll just have to see where we're at then and see how he's doing."
A source close to Suggs said he's unsure if he'll practice this week.
The Ravens have a three-week window to make a decision on Suggs' status or place him on injured reserve. Regardless of his readiness, though, the Ravens could opt to activate Suggs and carry him on the roster even if it takes him until late in the season to be able to play.
A source reiterated what it said following the Ravens' 9-6 win over the
"It's going to take time," the source said. "There's no reason to do anything risky with a guy this important. You have to think about the big picture with him."
Although Suggs has made steady progress in his rehabilitation, the Ravens have no intentions of doing anything to risk a potential setback and aggravate the injury.
Suggs has trained steadily at the Ravens' training complex, but still needs to work through scar tissue, get accustomed to contact again and return to optimal game shape.
Suggs led the Ravens with 14 sacks and seven forced fumbles last season. Without Suggs in the lineup, the Ravens' pass rush has languished with just 10 sacks in six games.
Ngata has sprained MCL
Pro Bowl defensive tackle
The source characterized the sprained knee as a "tweak," and Ngata is expected to play Sunday against the
"A relief, sure," Harbaugh said. "Absolutely, I'm very grateful for that. His injury is minor."
Ngata also aggravated a minor right shoulder injury Sunday. However, Ngata returned to play after being examined and finished with six tackles and the Ravens' only sack of Cowboys quarterback
"I had to fight through that throughout the game," Ngata said. "They got me pretty good. I felt like I would finish all along. I just didn't want to not finish. We had a good rotation going."
Offensive line holds up
With the exception of a single spin move by Dallas Cowboys star outside linebacker
The Ravens' offensive line held up well overall as they surrendered just three quarterback hits.
"We got the victory, and Joe had decent time to throw the ball on a lot of plays," Oher said. "That's what we want. That's one of the best defenses we'll see all year. Those guys are great across the board. They do a great job at a lot of different things."
The Ravens had allowed four sacks against the Chiefs, but had much better pass protection this game.
"We did a good job all day up front," said Flacco, who completed 17 of 26 passes for 234 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions for a 106.9 quarterback rating. "They're a pretty physical defense. They're a good defense, and they've got guys that can get to the passer. So, I think we did a good job all day of limiting that and getting the ball out of my hands. I think our receivers did a good job of beating the coverage pretty quickly, so I didn't have to hold onto it too long."
On the sack by Ware, offensive guard
"I think I did pretty well," Williams said. "I did trip that one play. I always think you can do better. I'm going to beat this film up and find a way."
Rookie offensive tackle
The Ravens' line received some sharp criticism last week from the coaching staff.
"We knew we had a challenge," said Osemele, a second-round draft pick. "Coach [Harbaugh] kind of called us out a bit. We responded and answered the bell, pride on the line and everything."
The Cowboys built a commanding time of possession advantage, 40:03 to 19:57, as they outgained the Ravens in total offense with 481 yards to 316 yards. "It's important," Harbaugh said. "I always believe it starts with the defense. You take it on your own shoulders and say, 'Let's get off the field.'" ... Harbaugh saluted Orioles manager Buck Showalter before kickoff. Showalter was an honorary game captain. "I looked back and 'Bam,' there he was," Harbaugh said. "It's like, 'That's Buck Showalter. Hey, Buck. I think you're great.' I said, 'Hey, we've got to talk.'"
