One of the most talented players in the AFC North might not be taking the field for the vaunted Ravens defense this year if recent reports are true. According to Pro Football Talk, Ravens all-world linebacker Terrell Suggs might have a torn achilles.
A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the Ravens have not yet received a conclusive diagnosis. Still, for now, it doesn’t look good.
And it won’t look good for the Ravens if they have to proceed without the 2011 defensive player of the year.
Injuries are a part of football as Browns fans know all too well. I certainly don’t take any pleasure in the fact that Suggs might not play this year. I always maintain that it would be more fun to see new Browns running back Trent Richardson pound through a Terrell Suggs than any of his potential replacements. All that being said, it is certainly news when one of the most talented players from a division rival might not be available for the two scheduled matchups with the Browns this year.
