Plenty of People Will Be Shocked If Suggs Steps On the Field Next Season – Responding to reports that he would miss the entire 2012 NFL season, Baltimore Ravens Linebacker/Defensive End Terrell Suggs told ESPN’s Rachel Nichols that he only suffered a “partial tear” of his Achilles tendon. He followed that up by stating that those saying he won’t play this year will motivate him and “make it so much sweeter when I run out of that tunnel and prove everyone wrong.”
He also stated that reports saying he hurt himself in a pick-up basketball game were false. Suggs says the injury occurred while running offseason conditioning drills. Whatever the case may be, I’m just hoping Suggs makes a full and speedy recovery. He is one of the League’s most dominant defenders and it would be a shame to not be able to see him perform this year.
