When the Ravens announced on Tuesday night that linebacker Terrell Suggs has undergone surgery to repair his Achilles tendon, G.M. Ozzie Newsome said nothing about the severity of Suggs’ injury or his timetable for returning.
Suggs has filled in those gaps, via comments to Mike Preston of the Baltimore Sun.
“As far as my return, it’s still the same as the [original] prognosis of four to six months,” Suggs said.
If it’s four months, he’ll be available for Week One. And it sounds like that’s the plan.
“I’m 29 years old,” Suggs said. “I don’t miss games. I’ll be returning soon.”
Suggs said the surgery went well. “Everything went good, he was in and out,” Suggs said. “There is only a small incision, and he said it was not as bad as some thought it was, which I had already been told.”
Suggs reiterated that it was a partial tear of the tendon, not a full tear. He said he can commence rehab in two weeks, and that he’ll be heading to Baltimore to meet with the Ravens on Wednesday.
