Suggs (Achilles) has been placed on the PUP list, but he is expected to return at some point during training camp, the Ravens' official site reports. Bouncing back from a torn Achilles suffered in Week 1 last season, Suggs was unable to participate in any of the Ravens' offseason program. Head coach John Harbaugh did say a few weeks ago that Suggs had a chance to be ready for the start of training camp, and while it's now clear that won't actually come to fruition, the team does still expect him to be ready for Week 1. With fellow outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil (foot) also starting camp on the PUP list, Za'Darius Smith and Kamalei Correa should get plenty of first-team reps.
Head coach John Harbaugh stated that Suggs (Achilles) "has a real chance to be ready to go" for training camp given the timing of his injury, The Baltimore Sun reports. Suggs had ruptured his left Achilles during Baltimore's 2015 season-opener, which would give him just over 10 months of recovery time before the commencement of training camp. When Suggs suffered a previous Achilles tear in late-April of 2012, he amazingly returned in under six months. However, that kind of recovery from a torn Achilles was largely unprecedented and even considered an athletic marvel of sorts, in which Suggs simply proceeded to log double-digit sack numbers in back-to-back seasons thereafter. Now, nearly four years older, Suggs will have to bounce back from the same catastrophic injury yet again. Fortunately, no setbacks have been reported in Suggs' recovery and the six-time All Pro appears to be fully committed towards playing in 2016.
Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome expects Suggs (torn Achilles) to return for the 2016 season, The Baltimore Sun reports. Suggs suffered the second torn Achilles of his career in Week 1, leaving the Baltimore defense without arguably its most important player for the entire season. He made a miraculously quick recovery from the injury back in 2012, but he didn't return to his usual form until the following season. Now 33 years old, Suggs is signed through 2018 on a contract that has team-friendly cap numbers, but with a high percentage of the money guaranteed. While it would be shocking if he opted for retirement, there's no assurance that he'll ever be a dominant player again.
Ravens shelved outside linebacker Terrell Suggs is not considering retirement, per CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. The 32-year-old Suggs will begin rehabbing soon from a torn left Achilles tendon that has cost him the 2015 season and will play next year for Baltimore or another team. Suggs has not slowed down in regard to production. He has 22 sacks over the last two seasons.
Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs, who suffered a torn left Achilles tendon in Week 1, was placed on injured reserve Wednesday. As a result, Elvis Dumervil is in line to occupy the Ravens' rush linebacker spot formerly handled by Suggs, while Courtney Upshaw is slotted to work as the team's strong-side linebacker.
