— Re­gard­less of Ben Roeth­lis­berger’s sta­tus on the Steel­ers’ in­jury re­port, Ter­rell Suggs is cer­tain that Pittsburgh’s start­ing quar­ter­back will play Sun­day in Baltimore.

“Don’t fall for that. Don’t fall for that,” Suggs said Wed­nes­day. “I saw this movie be­fore. He’s go­ing to act like ‘I’m not play­ing. I don’t know, I did in­di­vid­u­als to­day for a lit­tle bit.’ And then he’s go­ing to walk his big [butt] on out there.

“It’ll be like, ‘ How you do­ing, Ben­jamin?’ … ‘What’s up, Suggs?’ And then it’s on.”

Roeth­lis­berger un­der­went surgery to re­pair a torn a torn left menis­cus on Oct. 17. He missed Pittsburgh’s last game, but has re­turned to prac­tice this week.

Suggs also missed his team’s last game with a bi­ceps in­jury, but re­turned to prac­tice dur­ing Baltimore’s bye week in prepa­ra­tion to face the Steel­ers. He knows Roeth­lis­berger won’t miss a chance to play the Ravens, ei­ther.

“Don’t fall for that. I’m telling my boys [No.] 7 is play­ing, and not only that, he’s go­ing to try to light our [butts] up,” Suggs said.
