Suggs talks to WNST

Tell Baltimore I'll be running out the tunnel in October. Injury is high by my calf so 4-6 months.

The Achilles is not 'high in the calf'. I guess an official diagnosis would be helpful for fans to determine how upset and panicked they should be.

It does connect to the calf though.

WBAL reported on it's 1:00 news that it is a partial tear and he will have surgery on Tuesday and then they will know more. It's possible he could be back second half of the season, but he isn't going to have that same explosiveness and there is a chance he could do more damage. He is still in the prime of his career. It would be stupid of him to rush back. And I don't think the team would risk it either. But until the surgery is done, it is all just speculation.

I've had the same injury. He will be fine. 6 weeks in cast, month in walking cast. Rehab calf with bands, PT, also will have to work muscles around it like quads, glutes and hamstrings. I was actually stronger after, micro tears usually

cause the rupture. Could be blessing in disguise, these are usually time bombs waiting to explode cause of years of use. Glad now than in August. Most likely 6 months. 4 months is way to optimistic, but not impossible. My recovering with full explosion and speed was almost exactly 6 months.

My non-medical-degreed, uninformed opinion :) is that Suggs is probably being aggressively optimistic. But what I DO know is that recovery times for seemingly ALL injuries for pro athletes seem to be shrinking from year to year. I remember when Jamal Lewis went down early in camp in 2001 that just about EVERYBODY was assuming it would be 12 to 18 months before he could even think about playing full speed again, and that he would likely NEVER reach his potential. He was ready to roll before training camp the following season, had a really good 2002, and almost broke the single-season rushing record the year after that. Not that long ago, Lardarius Webb's injury had most folks ruling him out for the following season, and that he'd never be the same... but he was back at full speed well ahead of expectations. Now he's quickly becoming regarded as one of the better CBs in the game. Don't be too quick to rule ANYBODY "out" or "done" (whether it's for one year, or the rest of their career) just hours after an injury goes public.

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs told ESPN on Thursday he partially tore his Achilles tendon running a conditioning drill in Arizona but believes he can return by the middle of the 2012 season.

 

Middle of the season...and that's probably wishful thinking...not to mention he won't be in the best condition.

Suggs will play if the Ravens are in contention at the end of the year. If not, why would he risk an injury with nothing to gain. It will be as the season goes. In that it will be up to Suggs.

Sometimes events like this turn out better than expected.

 

Remember how the number three Raven's Rookie QB in 2008, got his start?

 

Number one guy was out for the season, number two guy was sick.

 

That turned out very well for the team.

 

Oh, the guy was name Flacco.

 

OZ must be born under a lucky star, drafting a blue chip LB, signing the team free agent LBs after Johnson leaves and then this Suggs injury comes out of no where.

 

All in all, Suggs will likely come back in December and be there just in time for the playoff run.

Tough news for any Ravens fan. I agree that if we are in contention he will play and if not rest for '13

He better get ready for some good old fashioned RNR then. :o

Having ruptured both of mine 20 years ago it is a year long process. Fixing it is easy. Crutches for 6 weeks, walking boot for 6. The problem is it still needs time to heal and I knew someone who ruptured his AGAIN a few weeks after surgery.

Time to man up Serigo Kindle.

That is great news! They are a lock to make the playoffs now (based on your past accuracy).

We're going to find out how bad Kruger, Kindle and Upshaw want it, they need to step up and they know it. You can't replace TSizzle but you can't have a defeatist mentality either, the Ravens know they have to man up and push forward.

Given the Ravens superior drafting and depth the team will be contending for a title whether or not Suggs plays.

 

It's not like the Ravens are some one trick pony like the Colts whose owner curled up in a ball, popped a few pills and blew up his whole organization when his only decent player gots hurt. :o

Hahaha. I will remember this post and perhaps bring it back around mid-season or so.

Unfortunately Suggs won't be back this year. This is a slow-healing injury. In fact I think the Ravens will IR Suggs to eliminate any desire or urge to rush him back too soon.

I would have to agree with you. Suggs can't be replaced in terms of what he brings to the defense, but in reality, the only guy on any NFL team today who probably can't be replaced is the QB. If it were Flacco that suffered that injury, I would say season over. But we have seen how defensive parts can be replaced because the scheme is more important than the talent. Ed Reed missed almost half a season two years ago, the Ravens were fine. Ray Lewis missed a few games last year and the defense hardly missed a beat. Harrison for Pittsburh missed time last year, and their defense was still at the top. No Suggs will put a little more pressure on the new DC, but if the players stepping in adhere to the scheme, they still should be a very good defense. The only reason Suggs hurts more than most players is that the Ravens lack a good pass rush from anyone other than him. If the scheme is adjusted properly, they can do just fine. It will be up to the coaches to figure out how to compensate for his loss. It's a great opportunity for Upshaw to come in and make a big impression. It's also a great opportunity for Kindle to actually contribute and show he belongs in the NFL. I have more faith in Upshaw. Kindle hasn't played consistently for two years and his character is very suspect in my mind.

Riiiiight. You'll be ducking me like all those people you were too scared to bet last year.

 

I predict you will have a new handle and be pretending to be a fan of a different team.

 

I don't blame you. Skins and Colts will both be terrible....again. :D

I couldn't care any less about the Redskins. And if by terrible you mean the Colts will be .500 or better.....then yes....we will be 'terrible.' I assure you of this.
