When told Tuesday of the comments by staff members at the basketball tournament, Suggs told ESPN through his agent, Joel Segal: "Simply not true. I hurt myself doing my conditioning test."
The fact that Suggs continues to maintain he was hurt in a "conditioning drill" indicates Suggs knows there could be big $$ at stake if he tore his achilles playinbg recreational hoops
If he hurt himself outside of organized team activities, they don't have to pay him, correct?
He's going to maintain that he hurt himself doing something related to the team so that he keeps his salary. NFL will probably investigate.
