— The Bal­ti­more Ravens will likely be without their de­fen­sive leader Sun­day when they re­turn to MetLife Sta­dium.

Head coach John Har­baugh con­firmed Mon­day that linebacker Ter­rell Suggs suf­fered a bi­ceps in­jury dur­ing Bal­ti­more’s 27-23 loss to the New York Giants the pre­vi­ous day. An ear­lier re­port stated that Suggs tore the mus­cle, but Har­baugh did not spec­ify that the inju-

ry is a tear. The re­port added that Suggs wanted to play through the in­jury.

“Suggs has a bi­ceps in­jury. He’s played with that in­jury be­fore,” Har­baugh said. “He has a chance to come back soon, how soon re­mains to be de­ter­mined.”

Suggs, 34, missed nearly all of last season with a torn Achilles suf­fered Week 1. He’s recorded five sacks through six games this year, in­clud­ing one of Giants quar­ter­back Eli Man­ning on the play he was hurt.

Har­baugh did not rule Suggs out when Bal­ti­more faces the New York Jets this week­end, but sug­gested that it is un­likely he plays.

“I’m not go­ing to say any­thing for this week, yet,” he said. “I think this week will be tough for him, but I don’t put any­thing out of Ter­rell Suggs’ pos­si­ble abil­ity to over­come. We’ll see how that goes.”

Bal­ti­more was al­ready without two Pro Bowl lineback­ers against the Giants. CJ Mosley suf­fered a thigh in­jury the pre­vi­ous week against Wash­ing­ton and fel­low edge rusher Elvis Dumervil is deal­ing with com­pli­ca­tions from a foot pro­ce­dure he un­der­went over the off­sea­son. Dumervil does not ap­pear likely to re­turn soon.

Har­baugh did not pro­vide any other in­jury up­dates, be­sides adding that Pro Bowl guard Mar­shal Yanda (shoul­der) is also un­likely to play Sun­day.

“Mar­shal Yanda will be a stretch also, with his situation,” he said. “We’ll see how that goes.”

Wide re­ceiver Steve Smith Sr. (ankle), re­turn spe­cial­ist Devin Hester (thigh) and rookie left tackle Ron­nie Stan­ley all missed Sun­day’s game. Jimmy Smith, the Ravens’ top cor­ner­back, did not come out of the locker room af­ter half­time with a concussion.
