Terrell Suggs Takes On Skip

Baltimore Ravens LB Terrell Suggs tore his Achilles' playing basketball in Arizona, as reported in ESPN. This is a bad news for Coach John Harbaugh and Baltimore football fans as Terrell Suggs is a big piece in the Ravens defense. Last February, Suggs was named the AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year for the 2011 season. Suggs had registered 14 sacks, 7 forced fumbles, and 2 interceptions during the 2011 campaign for Baltimore Ravens. Suggs played as a Ravens since 2003 is the all-time career sack leader of the team history. The team hasn't confirmed the Terrell Suggs injury could cost him the entire 2012 NFL season as it takes 9-12 months to heal the Achilles injury.

Adam Scheffer of ESPN tweets, "Ravens LB Terrell Suggs is expected to undergo surgery on his torn Achilles next week. He is likely out for the 2012 season." Although the Ravens drafted Alabama LB Courtney Upshaw in the 2012 NFL Draft but nobody can fill in on Suggs performance on the field. They should have someone, even if it's just a rookie, who can step on the plate.
