The hits just keep on coming for the Ravens.

Head coach John Harbaugh confirmed Monday that linebacker Terrell Suggs has a biceps injury. It’s reportedly a tear suffered during a fourth quarter sack of Eli Manning in the loss to the Giants.

"He's played with that injury before," said Harbaugh. "He has a chance to come back soon. How soon remains to be determined."

Multiple national outlets report Suggs wants to play Sunday against the Jets. Harbaugh isn't so optimistic.

"I'm not going to say anything for this week yet. I think this week would be tough for him but I don't put anything out of Terrell Suggs' possible ability to overcome," said Harbaugh.

This latest setback is the second serious injury over the last two seasons for the 34-year-old. He missed almost all of the 2015 campaign with a torn Achilles. Harbaugh said he hasn’t been told whether surgery is an option for Suggs.

A big part of what has the Ravens sitting at 3-3 and losers of three straight games is undisciplined, sloppy football. Case in point: 15 penalties against New York on Sunday. That, the big plays given up on defense and three losses decided by six points or less has Harbaugh at wit's end.

"It's not like we're sitting here going 'We don't have the players to do this. We don't have this guy, we don't have that guy or we can't stop anybody' or anything like that. We don't have those kind of issues. Our issues are self-inflicted. If they're self-inflicted we can fix them. We can fix them ourselves. It's just our job to do that."

Their job continues on the field at practice on Wednesday.
